    I was thinking of making this post, then dDave posted his PB&J one, so it was a sign, I needed to make it.

    Which do you prefer? Jam or Jelly? What is your favorite flavor? Brand?

    I love Jam over jelly every time. My Favs are Berry jams, marionberry, raspberry, strawberry. Strawberry is much preferred made frozen instead of just canned. Apricot jam is also delicious, but this one is cooked and canned, not the frozen variety. As far as brand goes, we make most of our jam ourselves, but will pick up off brands when we are traveling and see a new flavor.

    Oh Jalepeno jelly spread over cream cheese and eaten with crackers is also delicious.

    If I had to choose one, it would be jam. I'm not sure which flavor would be easiest to choke down though.

    Jelly is made from just the juice so there aren't bits of fruit or seeds in it. Jam is made from the whole fruit so its thicker and has bits of fruit.

    Neither. I don't eat jam/jelly (thanks for differentiating it btw). It's unfortunate because my friends say our confiture is one of the best in the world. Although, I wouldn't know if they're telling the truth or just fishing for a care package from me, lol.

    Jam. Jelly is like Jell-O. I don't like jelly because of it's texture and it's hard to spread on a piece of bread. Jam goes with the flow and spreads easily.

    My mother makes homemade apple jelly. It's the best thing ever. I love it on toast. It's just wonderful. I prefer strawberry jam when it comes to mixing it with my peanut butter however.
