    Default What is Jelly?

    Is it what we Brits call Jam as in the image below?

    I saw someone talking about peanut butter and jelly and I just could not imagine how you would stop
    the jelly sliding off the sandwich!

    It would be what you call jam. That second image looks like what we call jello which is a gelatin.....hope I didn't confuse you more...
    I want to see someone try to eat the jello in a sandwich....lol
    "...Because 12 men testified they had seen Jesus raised from the dead, then they proclaimed that truth for 40 years, never once denying it. Every one was beaten, tortured, stoned and put in prison. They would not have endured that if it weren't true. Watergate embroiled 12 of the most powerful men in the world-and they couldn't keep a lie for three weeks. You're telling me 12 apostles could keep a lie for 40 years? Absolutely impossible." -Charles Colson

    What we call jelly here is jam without the fruit. (Jelly is made just from the juice of the fruit)

    Okay in America here is the difference:

    Jelly - a sweet spread for bread that is created using only fruit juices
    Jam - a sweet spread for bread that is created using fruit juices and pieces of the fruit also.

    So, jelly is more clear because it doesn't have any fruit in it. What you call jelly, we call Jello.

    so, to sum it up : jam is jam in both countries, jello is jelly in the U.K., jello is jello here, jelly is jam without chunks of fruit. everybody cool with that!?!?

    Why would you have a spread just made of fruit juices? Anyway, in Australia we follow the Brits. But that's almost always been the case.

    Just to add to the jelly alternatives already given: speaking of jellyfish, apparently some people fry and eat it.

    If you are making jams, jellies or marmalade you use Pectin, which is derived from plants, as a gelling agent but the gelling agent in jello, is gelatin which is derived from animal bones, hides and skins. Gelatin also is used to make glue.

    You're all so funny, you make me laugh so much.

    Let's see if I have this right.

    Jelly is jam but without the fruit and with the juice only. So strawberry jelly is strawberry juice?
    And you like to have this on bread with peanut butter.

    Ive never tried peanut butter with jam, maybe it wouldn't work and it would only go with jelly.

    Peanut butter with sliced banana is yum

    Ah just have to share this with you, I was looking up examples of Yorkshire slang to explain eye-by-gum and came across this.
    I've just spent the last 10 minutes laughing my socks off

    At the eventual passing of the eldest Nun in the Convent, the remainder of the members decided that a special headstone was required for such a devout person.
    After much deliberation the inscription "God, she is thine" was agreed upon and the local Yorkshire stonemason duly instructed.
    The day before the ceremony the stone was delivered to the local church, but on closer inspection the Nuns were horrified to find a typo, as the inscription read "God, she is thin".
    The stonemason was telephoned immediately, informed that "you have missed out the "e", and asked to rectify the fault post haste as the memorial was required the next day.
    The stone was collected by the stonemason forthwith and re-delivered later that day having been duly corrected.
    The headstone now reading "e' God, she is thin".




    Ee is just an expression of surprise, similar to "well I will go to foot of our stairs", or you will never believe this etc.
    ba-tat means without a hat. So it would read on Ilkley moor without a hat!


    Here is another example of Yorkshire lingo.

    A man goes to the vet because his cat is poorly. The vet says "Is it a tom?" and the man says "Nay lad, 'ah've got it 'ere in t'basket!"


    Translation Is it a Tom = is it at home
    Nay lad etc. = no lad I've got it here in the basket

    It's neither. The first really is jam. You can tell, because it has fruit in it.

    The second is Jello. That's one of those things we call by the most famous maker of the product -- JellO. (We often call our paper tissues Klenex and our "plasters" are band-aids. Plaster is what's wrapped around a broken limb over here. lol)

    Jelly is something like jam, minus fruit. Have you ever seen mint jelly? And, if you have, isn't it something like your second picture in consistence? Or how about jelled cranberry sauce? Not the kind with chunks of cranberries in it, but closer to the kind that looks like that Jello mold. That's jelly.

    Some of our jellies are apple jelly, grape jelly (even though the jars call it "jam," there isn't a chunk of concord grape in the batch), and crab apple jelly.

    I prefer jam. I like the chunks. Still, I'll call a P & J (our shortened version of peanut butter and jelly) "peanut butter and jelly" knowing I won't make one unless jam's involved. So, just because we say peanut butter and jelly it doesn't necessarily mean jelly.

    So. Back at you. If my car gets a flat tire at night. I'm going to get my flashlight out, open the trunk, pull out the spare, and change the tire with a lug wrench. What do you do? (I know all those words aren't your words, but I can rarely remember your words, other than your flashlight is a torch. lol)

    Let's see, car gets a flat tyre or a puncture, get out the torch, open the car boot, pull out the spare and change it with - well at this point I'm no mechanic but maybe someone else can fill in this part!

    Would have to make sure any passengers are safe on the path or pavement (sidewalk) and find a safe
    place off the motorway (freeway?).
