What’s your favorite on toast? Jam or Marmalade?

Ever wondered the difference between the two?

Jam is made from fruit, solidified with pectin, and sugar is added for sweetness. Jam is great for fillings and retains the fruit pulp, which contributes to its thick consistency. Making peanut butter and jelly? Often, you’re making peanut butter and jam—jelly is somewhat thinner, made from fruit juice instead of whole fruit.

Marmalade, on the other hand, is most often made from citrus fruits, and is made by boiling the juice of the fruit along with the peel in sugar and water. Marmalade is most often made with oranges but can be made with any combination of citrus fruits—think grapefruit, lemon, lime, and occasionally you can bend the rules a little and make a savory marmalade with ingredients like onion, shallots, etc.  The inclusion of the fruit peel can add a bitter tang that many marmalade lovers enjoy.
