Yes, in the states, we call it jello. Which is actually a brand name. I think the reason people in the US call jelly jello, because it's about the only company that sells the gelatine, flavoring, and sugar all in one package. My take on the jelly vs jam controversy is jellies are clear without bits of fruit while jams had bits of fruit in them (except marmalade which has orange rind) ________________________________________________ It's worth the risk of burning, to have a second chance...
