Also, let me see if I have this right.  What we in the US call 'jelly' is 'jam' in the UK, while UK 'jelly' is our 'gelatine'.  I don't know if there's a particular term for 'jam' in British English -- the difference between (USian) jelly, jam and preserves being that jelly is made with fruit juice, jam with fruit pulp, and preserves with actual chunks of fruit included.

in the uk this is what people think when you say jelly.



which is basically fruit flavored gelatine. You can get it ready made or make it up yourself to set.

And jam is preserves, like here.



this is why when we make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich here, its jam we use.

Best jam ... Knott's Berry Farm

Marmite ... no American version

This was a big part of my California childhood.  My grandmother loved it, particularly their fried chicken (my grandfather hated all chicken).  No admission charge until 1968, so we went there much more often than Disneyland.

Best jam I've tried is this.



Sells on amazon.com for $27, but I get it here in tescos for like £3.

As for marmite, my half american half Swedish friend was curious about marmite, so sent him a pot for christmas one year. He said he was awful, and that veggiemite was better.

our friendship survived despite this.
