Break out the unsalted butter, spread it on a hot croissant, after all you want to be transported to to Paris (oh pronounce it as the French do Pah-ree). Open the preserves, spoon a cherry-filled scoop out and dollop away. You are mesmerized as one bite in and you are hearing the water lapping against the Seine's river bank. French Style Preserves have a translucent base in which the cherries are suspended as if they are floating in mid-air. The sort of surreal experience one should have with jam.
