Jam vs. Jelly

Key Differences

Jam has a thick, chunky texture due to the inclusion of crushed fruit pieces, offering a more robust fruit flavor. Jelly, by contrast, is smooth and firm, made from fruit juice, resulting in a clear and gelatinous consistency.

Jam is made by cooking crushed or chopped fruit with sugar, preserving the natural fruit fibers and seeds. Jelly is prepared by cooking fruit juice with sugar and a gelling agent, usually pectin, to achieve a clear and gel-like consistency.
