My opinion on the reboot so far? I really like the digital store.

I believe one has chunks of the fruit in it while the other doesn't. Not sure which is which though.

Also, Batman can catch bullets.

I haven't seen anyone use jam in a while... I have no idea O.O

I'm really not sure :T Their both fruity and delicious

I've always thought that jam was the fruit preserve, and jelly the gelatin dessert. I didn't know that the two could be synonymous until much later in life.

Jam > Jelly

I. Have. No. Idea.

But I don't like either. Peanut butter FTW!

I really didn't care for the panel on that page where the smoke grenades blinded the helicopters. Without actually seeing any of those those unusually-shaped canisters do their thing I had to take a few seconds to think about what had happened. Kind of killed the momentum for me. Then Batman basically shot an alien through the leg on the next page... it's just not my kind of comic.

Give me Question Duck any day!

Liked the penciling on the faces though.

I dunno, ain't read the rebooted stuff yet. But, since they did do a reboot, thus bears the question; "Are we still gonna see a sequel to Dark Knight, or are they gonna do another origin movie again?"

I don't know if it's different in Amercia (because of slang) but in Aus Jam is something you spread on sandwiches and has chunks of fruit in it, and Jelly is something you (usually) eat on its own, and that's got no chunks, it also comes in way more flavours like port wine.
(So when you say peanut butter and jelly, that means peanut butter and jam down here)

I was always taught preserves had fruit, jam was had fruit pulp and was cloudy, and jelly was made with juice and was clear.

Jam is a bread spread and Jelly is something that wobbles on a plate, perhaps?

I always thought that jelly had pectin in it and jam didn't.
(I looked up the real answer and found out I was wrong.)

Jam, Jelly, Marmalade, Preserve and Butter

Found me this on the web:
"Jelly is made from fruit juice and so has no fruit bits. Jam is made by boiling fruit and does have fruit bits. Preserves are basically the same as jam unless you buy them from Smucker's, in which case if it's got seeds in it it's preserves and if it doesn't it's jam. Marmalade typically is a citrus-based preserve, sometimes containing the rind, but other fruits can be used. Apple and peanut butter are called that because they bear a resemblance to dairy butter. But if you want to call it apple jam (as opposed to apple jelly, which is made from juice), fine by me."

First or second time I actually post something relevant to the question, huh?

Can't believe I sat down on a free day to LEARN. Dammit psudonym, can't I lazy about in peace without you tickling my curiosity?

jam doesn't have to be cooked, it can be made w/ raw fruit puree and pectin, then frozen for storage. jam is usually made from cane berries, strawberries, or peaches/plums/nectarines.

jelly is made from fruit juice and pectin and i think it's always canned.

apple butter is pretty much apple sauce that has been cooked down so it's thickened and it has spices added to it. this can also be done with pears. i believe this is also always canned.

home made jam kicks booty!

Thrudd, Sep 07, 2011, 01 pm

It's the local slang mates.

BM03 has it much closer to the mark than boo. Sorry Boo but frozen treats are not part of the equation since Jam/Jelly predates refrigeration.

The British/Aussi term Jelly is equivalent to the NA term for Gelatin based treats. Gummi Bears and Jello being two extremes of the same thing, just like The Doctors Jelly Babies.

As for the bread spread or cake filling, etc.
Jelly - made from the juice of a fruit.
Jam - cooked whole or chopped fruit.
Either may contain added sugar and Pectin to help with the thickening process.


Side note on Pears - I have a pear tree and my solution for the abundance of fruit (except this year) was just peel, core, and slowly cook till they get mushy, then reduce to half their volume or less, then bag and freeze. No added sugar needed and makes a good substitute when baking for lactose intolerant family memebrs.

Jam has small bits of fruit, because it's mashed up basically. Jelly is juice that has been jiggle-fied.
