Interestingly, there is a legal definition for both (Jam Regulations)..
Why isn't marmalade called orange jam ?
See, I told you there was eggs in curd Stoner!
Oh come on, spotted as soon as the screen came up and edited within 20 secs and still someone has picked up on it! I can't hide it now Jamie and now I look foolish. Or Stoner looks foolish, it's not me who's full of eggs!
Raspberry Jam's the dangerous one.
I wonder how many people got that
Loganberry jam, anyone?
so if marmalade is made from the fruit, juice and pulp of oranges boiled in sugar and water, why are all the best selling brands even allowed to be called marmalade? They are mainly made from glucose/fructose syrup and contain only 20% fruit.

Lemon, and other fruit, curds were invented in Kurdistan. The K was swapped to a C for tax reasons, as during the Maths uprising in 1908, letters were increasingly taxed on the amount of internal angles they possessed. As a result many letters, such as Z, K, M etc were underused, and the average scrabble score went down.
Mary Queen of Scots was seasick on a voyage from Scotland to France. Orange jam was the only thing that she could eat, and the crew, being french, used the words "Mary malade" to describe her condition, which she thought was its name.
MQOS moved to France when she was 5 and returned to Scotland when she was 18. She was probably more comfortable conversing with the French sailors than with the Scots.
