Jelly is American for jam. What we call jelly they call jello or gelatin.
 
 
 
 
 
/edit: what they call jam we call a noisy tuneless racket made by stoned hippies.

Good coarse Ardennes pate if a quick breakfast is needed (gotta be good bread, though); Marmite, if pate not available.

For a more substantial one; beans + 2 fried eggs



Hungry now
Me too. Unhappy
 
Got to be Ardennes, good and coarse - that smooth stuff is just posh baby food.
 
Smoked fish pate is good too - mash up smoked mackerel, salmon or trout with some quality cream cheese, a dash of lemon and plenty of pepper - loverly. Approve

Marmalade is simply jam made with citrus fruits, often with piece of the candied peel to give a bitter taste.

To further confuse things we also have "preserves" which appear to be just jam with a higher content of chunky fruits....
oh yeah

Is a jelly like a clear jam then with no fruit?

Highly recommend some freshly grated horseradish in the mix, too (has to be fresh, not the creamed rubbish). Not too much, or you'll smother the taste, but enough just to give it a bit of a kick. In the absence of fresh horseradish, wasabi paste works well, too

And another thing:

No that sounds like British jelly. I mean the stuff you put with peanut butter.

I'll google  it.

Yes....a clear jam

" Jelly is a clear or translucent fruit spread made from sweetened fruit (or vegetable) juice and set using naturally occurring pectin  "

No gelatin.

"Jelly can be made from sweet, savory or hot ingredients. It is made by a process similar to that used for making jam, with the additional step of filtering out the fruit pulp after the initial heating."

I never said they were consistant Wink Hoover is a trade name that we use as a generic name for all vaccuum cleaners and so it is with Jell-O.
 
We sometimes call jam preserve and sometime we call it conserve and some may even claim there is a difference based upon fruit content, but that's just a marketting ploy.

The Tesco order of ascendance:

Jam = cheap (99.999% sugar 0.0001% fruit flavour/colouring - avoid)

Preserve = more expensive (may have a poncey label & more than 25% fruit; acceptable - just)

Conserve = most expensive (will have a poncey label & a half decent percentage of actual fruit - recommended)

It seems to be a reasonable definition

True, but you'd not put any of those on toast, they are more like condiments or clear chutneys for serving with savoury foods.
 
The Wikipedia entries that refer to fruit jellies that you'd spread on a piece of toast all seem to reference Ruth Berolzheimer, an American cookery book editor and home-economist. Grape Jelly, which is the common ingredient for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, is a jam.
