Cranberry-Raspberry Preserves & Some Hot Peppers, Too

I have been canning up a storm again. In the past three days, I put up some pickled hot peppers and two double batches of Cranberry-Raspberry Preserves. I am posting some photos here for your viewing pleasure. Don't tell my dermatologist, okay?

Very lovely! Is there really a difference between jam and preserves, or is it simply a regional language difference?

I believe that preserves have bits of solid fruit in them whereas jams are a smooth paste of fruit. Jellies, of course, are jellied juice with no fruit solids. You might be interested to hear that I have read about jams made with TEA!
