Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Carol Taylor’s – Culinary A – Z Rewind – ‘J’ for Jelly Beans, Jalapenos, Jack Fruit and Jerky all with a little Jus

Welcome to a repeat of my A-Z  series …Sally who writes Smorgasbord Magazine is repeating the series for which I thank her it is not only a reminder for me, of the amazing variety of food we have available to us today from around the world, but delicious recipes to showcase them. I am enjoying the recap…I hope you are too…and for any new readers…Welcome 🙂

Today it’s the letter J…

Starting with one of my favourite little sweeties the Jelly Bean…

Jelly Beans are primarily made of sugar with jelly inside a candy shell…There are some awesome flavours…Tabasco Flavour, Chilli Mango, Marguerita and some beautiful fruity flavours…Cringe-worthy flavours like Earthworm, Earwax and vomit are for me a No No! But I suppose for Halloween revellers they will be on someone’s list…

Jelly:

Depending on where in the world you live Jelly can be a wibbly wobbly fruit jelly made with gelatin which in England is served with fruit and cream or used to make a trifle. In the US jelly is put on bread or toast or made into a tart and is what we Brits call jam…Are you confused yet?

Jellies are also sweets…fruit jellies of all shapes and sizes…They may be plain or covered in sugar but are what we call jellies in England
