    I do not eat jelly but I have jelly fish story. We went to aquarium 2 years ago and I saw lots of jellies in the aquarium, they look like floating cotton in the air. They have bones in them too like us. The bones may be look like thinner than fiber.

    • Karen T

      Jellyfish are such interesting creatures ramadevi.☺

      • ramadevi

        Ya, they are beautiful creatures.The jelly fishes which I saw were colorful and different patterns. They look really beautiful when they swim in the water. We got lots of pictures of the jelly fishes.

    As a kid, I refused to eat jelly. The word “jelly” just grossed me out. But when I tried it as an adult on a toaster English muffin with butter, I found my new late night snack!

    • Karen T

      That is a good snack Diane! Of course I’ve graduated from grape jelly to strawberry or apricot lol.

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        I especially like strawberry!

  • Zhulin Gao

    When I was little, I really don’t enjoy eating toast bread. But my mom still wanted me to eat breakfast, so she tried to make different types of jelly that I could put on top of my bread. After that, the jelly was my motivation for breakfast. She made banana jelly, kiwi jelly, peach jelly… That was really sweet even if some jelly tastes a little bit weird.

  • Julie Dascoli-Yanop

    When I hear the word Jelly I think if Jelly beans!!! my favorite candy in the world.!

  • Mark Hall

    It’s Jam not Jelly Dammit! Jelly wobbles and you have it with Ice Cream :0

  • dolfanatl

    We have a dog that gets jealous if we give either of our other dogs any attention. When she gets in between us and another dog, we call her Jelly (for jealous).

  • Donald Beasley

    At one of the dollar stores, I saw jars of raspberry jelly. I bought a jar. I put it on toast, tasted it, and now love it more than strawberry jelly.

  • 77giggles

    My mother used to make the most delicious thin pancakes and then she would spread butter and jelly on them. Then she would roll them up like rolling up a carpet. I don’t know what they were called, but they were scrumptious.. crepes, maybe?

    Many times state legislatures are caught in gridlock, but in Louisiana they found a way to work across the aisle and get some important laws passed.
    Louisiana knows how to live large and get important issues on the books and in the Dixie state jelly is an important issue where they can find compromise.

    One party wanted to make mayhaw jelly the official state jelly.

    The other party prefered Lousiana sugar cane jelly. What to do? Here is the law that both parties could agree to:

    §170.8. State jellies

    A. There shall be two official state jellies.

    One official state jelly shall be the mayhaw jelly. Its use
    on official documents of the state and with the insignia of the state is
    hereby authorized.

    B. The second official state jelly shall be Louisiana sugar cane jelly. Its use on official documents of the state and with the insignia of the state is hereby authorized.

    Acts 2003, No. 76, §1.

    I think all states should take note of this great compromise and do the work they were elected for in representing their constituents.

      What is mayhaw jelly?

  • April

    My mom feeds jelly to some of her birds. And yes, the bees! We decided to cut down on jelly purchases and make our own this year. We made an easy strawberry jelly recipe. It was lots of fun and now she is stocked up for a while!

  • justinkeene

    Jelly i sometimes like donut filled with jelly, strawbery or apple jelly

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Ooh. Love Dublin Donuts jelly donuts but I’m always afraid I’ll look like a cocaine snorter when by the time I finish because of the confectioner’s sugar on the outside of them. LOL

  • Ray Ayala

    Jelly is fun to make from scratch, but I don’t like using pectin. My favourite jelly is apple jelly. I also don’t like to boil and strain the apples. So….to short cut the process, I use 10 parts apple juice to 7 parts sugar.

    Apples and some other fruits have pectin in them so I can

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Wow! Respect!!!

  • Sylvia

    I have an elderly aunt that is a jelly thief! I love taking my aunt out for breakfast or lunch but she always takes all those little packets of jelly and pops them in her purse. I have bought her jars of the stuff but this has not impacted her jelly stealing behavior. When I say Aunt Ida has sticky fingers I’m 100%serious! She is 93 so I don’t think I’m going to change her ways; I guess I should be thankful she leaves the silverware on the table.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      LOL!!! If my husband was a woman and carried a purse, restaurants would be missing a lot more stuff!

  • DMWIRRAL

    Maybe just as well no photo’s – huh?

  • Hennessy Is-way Toospoiled

    I am addicted to Jelly I like to put it on all things bread like. Which caused me to become diabetic. I love strawberry jelly

  • jah_blessd

    All my jelly stories end with it on my shirt…

  • Merm123

    Red Pepper Jelly was one of my favorite jelly’s and I used to eat it all the time until one day I became allergic to red peppers so I was so sick in my older years from eating it and my tongue got all swollen and really bad stomach cramps for three days from it. The reason I know is that even the juice of a red pepper reacted to my body.. Oh how I love red pepper jelly but can’t eat it anymore. I better just stick to my PBJ sandwich 🙂

  • Tazs James

    Jelly on toast with lost butter in the morning with coffee is the best

  • Lisa

    Grape jelly on my scrambled eggs… a MUST!

  • Tina Raynor

    Currently when I think of jelly, I think of an amazing sandwich with tons of Swiss cheese, your favorite berry jelly, sliced jalapenos on buttered sour dough bread and grilled to golden perfection! It takes the old grilled classic to another level! Yummm!

  • Stacie Snow

    My grandmother taught me how to make jelly when I was a teenager. It was one of my favorite memories I have of her.

  • Crizzy

    In UK we make Jam from fruit boiled with sugar and water. If the fruit has loads of hard seeds which people find unpleasant as with blackberries or blackcurrants it can be strained to produce a clear Jelly. Which ever method, the resulting spread is irresistible so excuse me while I go and sample my own Plum Jam on hot toast. We had a huge crop of Victorias this September.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      I’ve never had plum jam. It must be delicious!

  • Tawny

    Don’t like jelly. Tastes fake, has a weird consistency and is terrible for you…

  • Surveys Profit

    It used to be peanut butter with jelly toast but stopped a few years ago due to its high calories.

  • MyKinKStar

    I ate Jif smooth peanut butter and Welch’s grape jelly on Sunbeam white bread every single day when I went to Catholic school (kindergarten to 5th grade), but if I forgot my lunchbox in Mother’s car then the nuns would make me lunch . . . Those ladies were waaay ahead of their time in the 60’s cause they used chunky peanut butter, strawberry preserves; on wheat bread! It was really bad, but I ate what I could to be nice. Now I prefer chunky peanut butter and like wheat bread too, but now it’s Welch’s grape jam. Apricot preserves aren’t bad, but can’t do those strawberry seeds!

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      Yeah, I’m not supposed to eat strawberry seeds but who can resist strawberry jam? (I obviously have no willpower.)

  • Nicole D. C

    I go to a nearby town every summer and pick my own raspberries. Just so i can make jelly

  • Carin Potts

    Jelly always reminds me of my granddaddy. He loved his butter bread with jelly and at our family dinners, always saved it til the end of his meal to soak up all the leftover gravy on his plate.

  • Carol Miller

    My jelly story is raspberry preserves. I not only put it on peanut butter sandwiches but over Brie cheese as an appetizer. I also serve it as a sauce for lamb and pork. My mother use to preserve raspberry jelly so I believe I got my taste for it from an early age. My mother would make homemade biscuits and I would have them for breakfast with homemade raspberry preserves. I can’t ever think of breakfast without thinking of them.

    • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

      I love Brie cheese. I once had it on a burger in a restaurant in NYC. Delicious any way you serve it!

      • Carol Miller

        Thanks, Diane. I hope Natalia’s problem is taken care of. She had over $$70 in her account and now can’t get back on because it is saying she resigned.

        • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

          Congrats on winning the question you were looking for. I hope they fix Natalia’s account. She gives good answers to the daily questions, too.

  • edeliz

    The first time I tried orange marmalade. I thought it would be so delicious, I was around 5 at the time. Man, that’s a flavor you have to grow into.

    • Monique Bessette

      Love orange marmalade too.

  • Paul Clément

    Not much of a story other than my wife and I spent close to 2 hours picking crab apples from a neighbour who just wanted to get rid of them. Then we rushed home to make crab apple jelly. A few more hours there, clean, prepare, cook, add this and that, pour into jars, sit and wait, open first jar. DARN! Well, we could call it crab apple juice, no?

  • Helen Kirschman

    I think of the time I made jelly bread

  • rose morgan

    PB&J every day as a kid after swimming in our pool.

  • Leslie Anne Soloman

    I prefer jam rather than jelly. Strawberry jam is my favorite, Welch’s to be exact.

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    What’s a trifle?

    • DMWIRRAL

      Knew that would happen. Trifle is a dessert or sweet or pudding (you choose). Take a large bowl, lay some sponge fingers in the bottom and soak with a good sherry – you guess the amount.
      Add some friut as to taste. Take some jelly cubes and add hot water. When dissolved, pour over the sponge/sherry/fruit. When cold, cover with a generous amount of whipped cream. Keep in the fridge and serve when needed.
      I’m diabetic now and can’t enjoy too much! Still a little of what you fancy . . .

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        You can cheat once in awhile. Just cut back on sugar and carbs for the rest of the day, and make sure it’s a small portion. Sorry, it’s the nurse in me. Sounds delicious, though!

        • DMWIRRAL

          For sure you can – (and I do).
          Takes all the fun away, though lol

          • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

            LOL!!!

  • Timothy Mccollum

    I love the Little Rascals when they were sharing a jar of jelly when camping out. The only one that ended up eating it was Spanky.

  • G Malloway

    Jelly donuts! Absolutely love the raspberry jelly donuts that are sugar coated with a cup of hot coffee 🙂

  • Malia D.

    I made jelly on accident by combining styling gel & a mousse together, thinking it would style my hair twice as well if I just mixed them together & applied it. Nooooo…it came out as a sticky, jelly like concoction that I could barely get off of my hands. I was younger…what can I say. Actually, stylists do that all the time but I definitely picked the wrong two products to mix. That’s my jelly story! (Sorry it’s not about the jelly pictured)…lol.

  • William Norman

    I can remember that a neighbor had asked my Grandfather if he could watch his son for a little while. My Grandfather said sure, we are just sitting down for lunch. He can join us. My Grandfather made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for us. The kid was upset, he wouldn’t eat the sandwich. My Grandfather asked him if he liked them. He said yes. Then why was he upset. He told my Grandfather that he made the sandwich wrong…. My Grandfather looked at me surprised. Did he not like the type of jelly or the peanut butter brand ?? The kid said no. It was the my Grandfather had put the jelly and peanut butter on the wrong sides! Jelly was suppose to be on the top.

  • Jennifer Leach

    My grandmothers homemade apple jelly was the best.She made it with fresh apples from her farm the old fashioned way. Pure perfection. Oh how I could taste it again.

  • Melissa Furr

    Ha, what a great story I have for you all…I was about four years old, I know, it was a long time ago, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. So, my dad was watching my brother and I for a few hours while my mother went out with her friends. He decided to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for supper that night. We all sat down and ate and that was that. Well, that was that for them, but not for me…I decided that I needed more jelly. Not peanut butter, just jelly. So, I got some, a lot. I emptied out the jar. Just seems it was too much for my little hands. It ended up everywhere. I mean everywhere. In my hair, on my clothes, even in my bedroom slippers. My dad had a fit. I swear, it took three baths to get that stuff out of my hair. My mom came home and everything was back to normal, except that my dad was asleep on the floor in the living room and is kids were still going strong. I guess the jelly have us a sugar rush. Oh how we loved our dad. He was great.

  • Judy Burba McGarvey

    This summer, I picked wild blackberries in a field near my neighborhood. I managed to pick enough to make 8 pints of jelly and make a blackberry cobbler, but I got enough chigger bites to last me a lifetime! Next year, I think I’ll just get the tame berries and skip the chiggers.

  • Sue W.

    Making home made jelly with my mom and grandma from the grapes on the vines in our yard. It is so good warm on crusty Italian bread!

  • melaniex5

    I love baking for my family. A favorite they love is home made peanut butter and jelly cookies. I started making a thumb print in the cookie and adding the jelly before baking. One time I made 100 cookies and they were gone in one afternoon. Now when I say I want to bake something this is their request.

  • Theresa Holly

    My brother likes peanut and butter sandwiches but can never can decide on what kind of jelly. So he usually adds at least three different types on his sandwich which is more like a jelly sandwich and not peanut butter and jelly

  • Vikash Chandra

    My jelly story is raspberry preserves. I not only put it on peanut butter sandwiches but over Brie cheese as an appetizer. I also serve it as a sauce for lamb and pork. My mother use to preserve raspberry preserves so I believe I got my taste for it from an early age.

  • Denis Tremblay

    Since I was a young boy I don’t like jelly on my toasts. I was prefered going to school without eating my breakfast and be hungry all the morning than eating this stuff.

  • Jennifer H

    It always lands on the floor with the dry side of my toast up top. ugh

  • deedee walker

    My jelly story is when I was younger, I was kind of a pulp child. I always remembered when our little group of friends would gather around and make fun of our “jelly bellies” who had the best jingle jelly bellies. we all did
