Dinner is over. More jams and jellies in the future.

I decided to take it easy today. Tomorrow I´ll have Leticia around and she will take out the clean dishes from the dishwasher. Tomorrow I hope I can make more plum jelly and as a must I have to put in order all the papers that I have to take to my oncologist. A friend from England was asking about jams and jellies. I speak in Spanish, so I´m not sure. But for me, jams have bits of fruit and jellies are clean sweets, much like jello only natural. Anyone can give us a lesson on that?

In Australia, my understanding is that our jelly is the American jello and the condiment you put on bread or toast is jam. Some have pieces of fruit in and some are very smooth but they are all jams. Then we have marmalade as well but I think that is the same in the US. I'll be reading the comments with interest too. Perhaps I should have done that first! :)

In my country, marmalade has pieces of fruit. This is what I have been making with the apricots. The plums, on ther hand are very small so I cook them and only use the juice. This gives a beautiful clear jelly after I add the sugar and cooks some more.
