I love making jam, I have been making all kinds of homemade jams for many years. It has only been in the past two years that I have tried to make homemade jelly. Jelly takes a few more steps than jam, but if you're not a big fan of seeds in your jam, then you really want to try making jelly. This apricot jelly recipe is really easy to make. This is one of my top 10 easy-to-use homemade jelly recipes for beginner preserves.
If you're wondering what the difference is between jam and jelly, jam is made with whole fruit, which may or may not be peeled. If there are seeds in the fruit, then there will be seeds in the jam. Jams usually contain pieces of fruit.
The jelly is made by lightly cooking the fruit and then filtering it to remove the juice from the fruit. The juice is then used to make the jelly, and the fruit pulp is either thrown away or used for other things.
Many people who don't like the seeds in their jam prefer jelly to jam. Blackberry jelly is a great example. Most people don't like all the crunchy blackberry seeds in their jam, so blackberry jelly is a great alternative.
