Before diving into the recipe, I thought it would be interesting khổng lồ go over what the heck the difference is between jelly, jam, marmalade, và preserves. Many people use the four terms interchangeably. They are all the same in that they involve fruit, sugar, & heat. But, they differ in their cooking process và which fruits they use. Here is the basic gist:

Jelly– This is the most smooth of all of the options. You can make jelly using fresh fruit or fruit juice. However, if the jelly does use fresh fruit, it is strained out, leaving a clear and gelatinous consistency.Jam– Jam is like jelly’s rebellious sibling! Whereas for jelly, you strain out the fruit chunks, you leave the chunks in with jam. The fruit và sugar are cooked down khổng lồ become a spreadable consistency.Preserves– Preserves are a lot lượt thích jam, but even thicker! Instead of chopping up the fruit like you would to lớn make jam, you will find whole fruit or large chunks of fruit in preserves.
