The "jelly companion" clue is really confusing for this Brit - we put ice cream with jelly. Could you possibly clarify that it's the jam sandwich sort of jelly?

I agree. Do Americans know the word "jam" in the sense of food, though?
+2
level 55
Jul 2, 2015
Yes, Americans use the word jam for food. It's just not usually considered to be exactly the same thing as jelly, but very close. Jelly is more processed than jam. However, it would have worked in the clue just fine.

In the US jam is made by cooking mashed fruit or fruit pulp with sugar, and the end product contains mashed fruit and is softer than jelly Jelly is made by cooking fruit and straining the juice, then cooking the juice with pectin and sugar to make a translucent spread with no bits of fruit in it. Preserves are made by cooking the whole fruit (or large chunks of it) with sugar, and marmalade is jam or preserves made with citrus fruit. I make lots of all of these each year.

I have been educated today. Never would have realized that could be a problem. What kind of jelly do you eat with icecream? Is it like jell-o/gelatin?

UK Jelly = US Jell-O. US Jelly = UK Jam. I'm a Citizens for Boysenberry Jam Fan.

So, Larry, in the UK do you have both of what we call jelly and jam? If so, do you call both of them jam? (Again, jelly is clear juice jelled without fruit, while jam contains mashed fruit or fruit pulp.) Then there is conserve which usually contains dried fruit and nuts, and finally there are fruit butters which are basically fruit pulp cooked down with sugar to a dark, spreadable consistency. Cook applesauce with sugar and cinnamon until it turns thick and brown and you have apple butter.

ander217 In UK jelly is a clear fruit preserve, as you describe. Redcurrent jelly often eaten with roast meats. I have a friend who makes fabulous apple jelly with apples from her garden. I have failed to make a successful rosehip jelly with rosehips from our garden. Sigh. The clearness is why we call the Jell=o kind of jelly, jelly. (That and because it is made with gelatine [spoken as Jell-atin] I think) Wobbly and clear, or with fruit in it. Always a sweet treat and NEVER considered a salad. I once saw, on a TV programme, a jelly (wobbly king) cathedral that glowed in the dark and was edible.

Very nice quiz! Just one tiny thing… the second clue about pizza is slightly misleading for a non-American. As long as you designate pizza as an Italian dish, you should consider that "pepperoni" (which is basically spicy sausage, while pepperoni in Italian is just a wrong spelling for the word "peperoni", which means "peppers") is pretty far from being the most popular topping of pizza in Italy. An Italian who doesn't know American culinary habits would be tricked by this clue.
