I have to ask.

what is the difference between jelly and jam?

In Australia we use jam and peanut butter.

Jelly is eaten with ice cream.

Jelly is clear and bright, made from just the juice of a fruit, cooked with pectin and sugar, and has a firmer set. It wiggles like gelatin. Jam is softer, made from both the juice and crushed or chopped fruit, cooked with pectin and sugar, and has a softer set. It does not hold its shape like jelly. In the US, we eat both jelly and jam on toast or in sandwiches. I've not heard of putting jelly on ice cream unless you have a failed batch that doesn't set up. The runny syrup you're left with is terrific on ice cream.

Nope! The other Abilene - Texas. But both are pretty podunk and lack a Whole Foods, I'm pretty sure.  Cheesy

I know that the KS one is about as podunk as can be.   Wink

We actually just moved from Abilene a couple of months ago and I really miss the Drug Emporium. I've never heard of pomegranate jam, but that sounds wicked good. I really need to learn how to can so I can start making all these wonderful things. I've noticed that jelly seems to be a lot sweeter than jams, or maybe that's just because of the flavors of each that I have eaten. I prefer jams because they aren't as sweet to me and they have more of a "real fruit" flavor.

I was thinking the same thing! The photo is so appealing - I knew I wanted whatever was in that jar the second I saw the picture Smiley. Now that I know it's delicious jam I'm totally craving toast!!

Thank you for sharing!

This looks fantastic! I am now inspired to make jam. Can you tell me how much sugar you used? The recipe calls for 7 and a half cups, which seems like a heck of a lot.

Mmmmm, pomegranate jelly sounds divine! Yours look so pretty, like little jars of jewels.

Blackberry jam is on my to-do list today. We picked about 2 gallons of wild blackberries and the hubby and kids have requested a pie and some homemade jam. The blackberries were free so it saves me $$ but I agree with you. Who cares? It's delicious!
