What's the difference between Jams, Jellys and Natural Preserves? Jelly gets its fruit flavor from fruit juice. Jams are made with crushed fruit and preserves are made with fruit chunks in syrup or jam. What jams, jellies and preserves have in common is the sweet or tart taste that makes them perfect for much more than breakfast. Start your day with scones, pancakes, toast or bagels, but don't forget the preserves.
Use jams and preserves for glazes on grilled meat, baked ham and even meatloaf. Try a cake "sandwich" with angel food cake filled with Blackberry Preserves and heated in a sandwich maker. Many cakes, cookies and desserts call for jam or preserves and Spices Etc. has the very best!
