I vote for preserves - first of all I like the chunks of fruit and secondly, because usually I make my own. I choose to make preserves because I can use much, much less sugar. When I make jams or jellies I need high amounts of sugar to work with the pectin to make them set.

So what's the difference between jam and preserves?

Depending on my mood, it's either homemade strawberry jam, or marmalade.

Difference between jam and preserves is jam uses pecitin to make it firm but preserves is just cooked down fruit with sugar so it is thinner.

We have acres & acres of blackberries here so every year i make huge batches of pie, cobbler, jams and syrup. When I was preggo with my son I picked 88 quarts of berries that year! When I would go to bed at night blackberries were swimming in my head! It was a good year. My son's dad use to eat a whole pie himself in 1 day! My hubby loves peach so I make peach & peach - blackberry too.

Homemade blackberry jam and pie sounds soooooo good. We have a few blackberry bushes but thanks to the birds I've never managed to get enough to make anything with them.

My friend in WA does the best homeade organic blackberry jam. To die for! She sends me a few jars in the summer and it takes real restraint to make it last all year.

I voted for Boysenberry.

I like jam the best. My mom makes the most delicious strawberry and raspberry jams.
