Re: Someone please tell me..

According to teh interwebz:

 

Conserve: made of whole fruit cooked in sugar water. Has chunks of fruit in a gelled "background".

Jam: also made of whole fruit cooked in sugar water, but cooked long enough that the fruit pieces are soft enough to spread.

And whilst we are on this topic can someone tell me if the only thing than can be classed as marmalade is something made from oranges ?

Not true. There are grapefruit, lemon and lime marmalades.  Also according to some there is carrot marmalade.

I think it is that marmalade is made from the flesh and the peel of citrus fruits whereas jam doesn't have any peel

Ooo i know this one @gleneagles 

 

Marmalade has to be made out of citrus fruit and includes both fruit and rind.  Jam does not contain rind.

Looking at those ingredients it looks more like someone got into a bit of a pickle with their jam.

What about "No Peel Marmalade"?
