My canning book has recipes for Jams, Jellies, Preserves and Compotes.
But what is the difference between them?
Jelly: a soft somewhat elastic food product made usually with gelatin or pectin; a fruit product made by boiling sugar and the juice of fruit.
Jam: a food made by boiling fruit and sugar to a thick consistency.
Preserves: fruit canned or made into jams or jellies or cooked whole or in large pieces in a syrup so as to keep its shape.
Conserves: a candied fruit or a mixture of fruits.
Compote: a dessert of fruit cooked in syrup.
