I've never quite understood the American difference between jam and jelly. Can anyone give me a quick explanation please? 

 

I know American jelly is not the same as British jelly, which is a dessert mainly for children. That said, there can be very adult jellies, such as the orange one I've made for dinner tonight. Simply freshly squeezed orange juice with gelatin leaves to set. Segments of orange go into a nice wine glass and topped with the liquid and into the fridge to set. I'll get them out as we sit down to dinner so the chill is taken off a bit.

In my opinion (Canadian) jelly is a fruit juice set with pectin that is served on bread or as a condiment.  Think of grape jelly or mint jelly. 

Jam is made with the pulp of fruit and set with pectin and served on bread.  Common types are strawberry or raspberry jam.

What @Harters describes for dessert, we would call jell-o, (although that's a brand, I've never made it from scratch).

Anyone else know more?

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs is a favourite Sunday breakfast in tis house. 

 

My most memorable occasion with this breakfast was served on the train from Manchester to London a few years back. Breakfast comes as part of the ticket price and I didnt want the full fry-up breakfast that day, as we were travelling to the capital for lunch and didnt want to spoil my appetite.

Never heard of cream cheese and jelly but would try it.

PB and J is okay

 

My Mom just mentioned recent that she eats PB and honey sandwiches which I never heard her her mention or heard from anyone else.

 

Jelly is made from fruit juices

Jam is made from fruit, smashed

preserves is made with larger chunks of fruit.

Mom used to can all three growing up.

Baltimore area.  I asked my DH and he's never heard of it either.

Is it regional?

I googled it and found some references.  I found some for pepper jelly and cream cheese on crackers which I have heard of and tried and liked.

Cream Cheese and Jelly is very New York.

A long time ago, New York was the center of the universe.

Today it is just a small town in a 3rd world country.

OUCH!
