Fruity jams and jellies to preserve summer delights

What is the difference between all the soft and delicious fruit spreads? They all might seem the same but each has different special features, and thus the different names. They are easy to make and hard to resist. There are four main ingredients in all soft spreads: fruit, sugar, pectin and acid. The consistency of soft spreads varies from a firm set for jellies to a soft, honey-like consistency for preserves, and thus require slightly differing prep techniques.
