There was a discussion at a local restaurant about strawberry jam vs. grape jelly, offered in packets for customers to spread on their breakfast biscuits. DH and DS1 prefer seedless blackberry jam from local Amish market. I have seen creative names such as Traffic Jam and Christmas Jam on labels. Much can be said for a simple fresh from the oven biscuit slathered in butter, melting into the bread, oozing over the sides. Occasionally I will indulge in a small jar of orange marmalade, as I’m the only one in my home who enjoys it. Thanks to a neighbor’s abundant currant bushes, my mother would make currant jelly, sealing the filled jars with wax.
What do you like on your biscuits, toast, or other breads? Jam, jelly, preserves, marmalade, chutney? I don’t know the precise differences between those but they are all yummy in their own ways.
