Making jams, jellies, and preserves are a great way to make the most out of your fruit.
Jams and preserves have the most in common. Both of them are made with the fruit.
Jams are made with crushed fruit or fruit pieces. You just put chopped or crushed fruit in a pan with sugar and anything else called for and cook it.
Preserves are made with whole fruits and sugar.
You add the fruit and sugar and let it stand awhile and than you cook it.
Jellies are made in a two-step process.
First you make juice from the fruit.
Than, you add your sugar to the juice along with optional pectin to make the jelly.
All of them are good.
But that's what the difference is between them all.
