This morning I found the bowl of greengage jelly untouched. I had made the bowl to give to the Grandsons, but we were so busy we forgot to enjoy the pleasures of sweet treats. The boys have gone home already . . . Sadly . . . So my hubby and I will enduldge in greengage jelly for our dessert tonight. With ice cream of course! Why do some people call Jelly Jello?

I think to remember that Jell-o is the most popular US brand of Jellies, this is surely the reason.

@Inlemay This is what I always thought, there are other products that are called with the name of the historic brand.

Here, we call it jello, because it's made by the Jell-O company.

@inlemay Why not stick vodka in it and pretend it's absinthe?

I believe that Jello is the American term, whereas here in England it is Jelly.

Luckily Dianne remarked that the company that makes jelly is called Jell-O

In Australia it's jelly too. Jelly and ice-cream - so nice!

DE once asked me to use jello for clearing my sinuses...he described a method that was gross enough for me to know he has to be pulling my leg...in any event, it is animal protein so I had to say pass. lol

why did you call it greengage jelly? LOL Of course it's really gelatin but most everyone calls it all Jello even though that is a name brand....it's just something we do! Too many times I've made something special for guests then got busy and totally forgot to get it out.
