According to Wikipedia, jam is made by boiling/cooking all the bits separately, then combining them, whereas conserve is made by boiling/cooking whole fruits.

Jam today, Jam tomorrow, None Today ... as they say in Rome ;)

To quote those rather wonderful people at Tiptree Jams

Quote:
Arthur Charles Wilkin joined with two friends to form the Britannia Fruit Preserving Company. He stipulated that the jam should be free of glucose, colouring and preservatives. The first jam was of such high quality and impressed one Australian merchant so much that he arranged to buy every last pot. As new varieties were added the distinction between jams made with home grown fruit ‘Conserve’ and foreign produce ‘Preserve’ was made

I've never heard of that either. Now it seems to be sold with additional marshmallow fluff. This probably explains a lot about the difference between the current generation of Americans and their forbears.


Isn't everything from the USA sold with additional marshmallow fluff?

Especially the politics.

A reference to the mnemonic that Carroll was spoofing with his "The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday - but never jam to-day."?

Someone mentioned politics. And with the 'con' and 'pre' agreeing, perhaps, to disagree, they probably have a point.

Probably been mentioned before but... Peanut butter was originally sold with added bacon.



Peanut butter with bacon would be infinitely more acceptable than peanut butter and jelly (jam).

I'm not too keen on the sweet and savoury mix.

Peanut butter and (red) jam is nice.

No, no, no.

Peanut butter & Marmite.

Revolting*? Tell Sainsbury's, they sell it ready-mixed.

* no.

Oh I'm a big PB & Marmite fan. I also occasionally add in a scraping of mustard as well for when I want to be particularly attention-seeking with my toast spreads :)

My second favourite sandwich...

Take three slices of bread...

1. butter and Marmite.
2. peanut butter.
3. cheese on toast, Lea & Perrins optional.

Place the toasted slice between the two others.

I believe not, there is a distinction (correct me if i'm wrong), jam has 'bits' in it (as in seeds,skin, etc) and jelly is smooth, and is often more solid.
Hence us having both bramble jelly and blackberry jam both made of the same fruit.


Interesting, that's actually quite close to the German definition of the two. For us, jelly is smooth and wobbly and made of juice, and jam is chunky and spreadable and made of the entire fruit. Hence my mom makes both red currant jelly and red currant jam.

For brekkie Rose's Lime Marmalade on hot buttered toast, or Duer's thick cut Seville marmalade. I have tried Marmite with peanut butter it's good but to be honest I prefer Marmite on hot buttered toast just as it is. PBJ I don't care for, I too am not fond of the combination of salt and sweet, seems to be huge in the USA, chocolate covered pretzels FFS, even pretzel M&Ms.
