Jam vs Jelly.....Are they the same thing?

One of the most common questions I receive is "what is the difference between jam and jelly?". We often use these terms interchangeably, but in fact we are talking about two different products each with their own qualities. The main differences between jam and jelly lies in their texture and the way they are made. Jam is made from crushed or mashed fruit, giving it a chunky texture with bits of fruit and seeds. Often jam tends to be a little less firm in texture, allowing it to be spread more easily and used as a topping. A favorite for us is to pair the Farmette Fresh Raspberry-Rhubarb Jam with a soft cheese or to use it as an ice cream topper! Jelly, on the other hand, is made from straining the mashed fruit to remove any solids. This results in a product with a smooth and clear texture. It also tends to be a little firmer in texture. This firmness might be a little harder to spread, but you don't have to worry as much about it dripping out of your sandwich! Which is your preference? Jam or Jelly?
