Jelly means a soft, semisolid food substance with a resilient consistency, made by the setting of a liquid containing pectin or gelatin or by the addition of gelatin to a liquid, especially such a substance made of fruit juice containing pectin boiled with sugar.
Jelly, jam and preserves are all made from fruit mixed with sugar and pectin. The difference between them comes in the form that the fruit takes. In jelly the fruit comes in the form of fruit juice. In jam the fruit comes in the form of fruit pulp or crushed fruit. In preserves the fruit comes in the form of chunks in a syrup or a jam. Pectin is an indigestible carbohydrate (fiber). It is found in the cell walls of most fruit. When heated with sugar in water, it gels, giving jam, jelly and preserves their thickness.
Pomegranate make a fabulous jelly. Rich in antioxidants, pomegranates are an excellent fruit for making jelly. Their full-bodied flavor and brilliant crimson color bring life to the breakfast or dinner table.
