Jam has fruit pieces ,jelly does not.

Jelly has gelatin or pectin so it sets up sort of like Jello. Jam is thickened by boiling to a thick consistency, but it doesn’t set up like jelly.

A jelly is somebody who interacts on Fluther.
A jam is a difficult position where making a good decision requires reconciling difficult and opposing points of view.

@RedDeerGuy1 IMHO I think technically jelly is clear and jam has chunks or bits of fruit in it.

Google is a good source of information for questions like this. You are definitely not the first person to ask about the difference between jam and jelly. When I typed “what is the difference between jam”, Google completed the question. Several sites were returned, including this one

Well jelly in England is a kind of lumpy fruit mixture that is classified as a desert. However in America I think jelly is the equivalent of jam in English. Jam is a fruit spread that you put on toast.
