Well, there's gotta be a difference, because Smuckers and strawberry jelly and jam.
What is it?

EDIT: I have them both in my fridge and I'm wondering which to use for a PB & J sandwich.

Another EDIT: I'm American.

Easy.
Jelly you eat with ice-cream. It is wobbly and contains gelatine and not suitable for vegetarians.

Jam is a fruit conserve, made with fruit and lots of sugar. You spread it on toast or in sandwiches or a dollop in rice pudding.

Well here in Britainland, jelly is kinda like a gelatin dessert, and jam is mashed fruit and stuff that you use for scones at elevensies.

Jelly does contain gelatin in america, just less than Jello so it isn't as thick as jello but still thick. Jam is just all mashed up fruit in the states.

I don’t know the “technical” difference, but imo, jelly tastes disgusting and jam is like heaven…

But that’s just me

I'd say a lump/scoop is different than a considerable quantity but okay, thanks.

It's like a big blob of something. eg a dollop of jam/ice-cream/cream. Unstructured, unlike a scoop.

Jam contains both fruit juices and fruit pieces
Jelly does not contain fruit pieces, only their juice
Marmalade contains fruit rind
Preserves are basically the same thing as jam, except sometimes cooked

mmm, spreads
I'm pretty sure I got that right

A little late, but I think the real difference is that you can't jelly a **** in your ass.

Jello is such a ridiculous word, call it what it is =/

Jelly is made of jelatin and flavourings and water mixed together and then refridgerated until somewhat solid and eaten at childrens's birthday parties.

Jam is a fruit preserve usually made of red berries which you squish all the berries up and add sugar and put in a jar for a long time then spread on toast.

If any americans are confused on this perhaps you should write it down or something so you remember.
