Jelly cupboards have their historical roots in 19th-century America. Pioneers found plentiful fruit wherever they went and sought a way to can and preserve these finds for the long winter months. By the 1830s, jelly was common in Midwestern American households. Fruit was stewed into jam in large quantities, and appropriate storage facilities were needed. This led to the creation of the first jelly cupboards.
