Jam: Fruit preserves of any kind.

 

Jelly: Closest translation is what the US would call Jello. Transparent gelatinous object. Not always edible.

Jam- whole fruit used in making it.

Jelly- just the juice of the fruit is used in making it.

We don't really say "jam" very much around here, unless we mean the DJ is dropping mad beats. Usually it's "preserves" if it has chunks of fruit. If not it's "jelly."

I just realized I didn't actually post, but this, with the result of the second option.

I'd completely forgotten that jelly was the normal non-American term for jello, as ubiquitous as that trademark has become here. The generic term for jello here is 'gelatinous pudding,' which sounds just so appetizing no one can bear to use it, so jello it is. Presumably 'jelly' never got a chance at it because it already meant the preserve.

It never actually occurred to me that anyone would normally say 'preserve,' though. It has the sort of technical connotation here that words like 'watercraft' do, and so is only used in cases such as I have here, to group jams, jellies, and marmalades together.

It gets even more interesting when you get to know that jelly refers to anything resembling a gelatinous pudding in texture... soo say a gelatinous paste used as some kind of industrial lubricant would be considered a "Jelly"

I like to use personal lubricants as personal lubricants. Industrial lube isn't so good.

There's preserves, jam and jelly. The order of chunkiness from low to high is jelly-jam-preserves. All are their own entities. I'd eat preserves as like a topping for ice-cream, but not mixed with peanut butter on a sandwich, cuz that's just nasty. PB must go with jelly, period.

Thrash speaks the truth.

(the explanation about the ice cream & "preserves" was spot on)

I never understood how Americans like PB and… any of them, really, though I've mostly heard of PB and Jam, not Jelly. But any of them, it's just a disgusting abomination. Like iced tea without sugar. :(

Oh, I didn't see the bold.

I was under the impression Americans drink iced tea without sugar.

Yet another example of two countries divided by a common language.  Jello ® is a trade-marked name of a particular gelatinous and wholly unremarkable commercial product.  Jelly, jam and preserves are methods of preparing fruits for canning.  Ice tea is served here either sweet or unsweet but nearly always with lemon.

How about a fluffernutter (best thing ever)? PB with this:

 

Feature-Marshmallow-Fluff-Baking-Dessert

 

Also, if I have a choice of iced tea with or without sugar, I'll always choose without.
