French term or phrase: conserves et semi-conserves
Context: food products. I'm not too happy about preserves and semi-preserves, partly because the only internet sites I can find with these terms are translations of French or Spanish sites. I have considered "with long or medium use-by dates" but am also not totally happy about this
