comment Why do they put the jelly-like substance in pork pies?
While the original purpose of the pie was to preserve the excess of meat, nobody has mentioned that the pie pastry would also be discarded in old times, and only the filling was intended for eating.

I get nervous about anything containing nitrite - it is potentially carcinogenic.

comment What is the difference between coffee grinds/beans labeled as “espresso coffee” and ordinary coffee?
Y right - pure Arabica is better, but the Italians insist on cheapening the mix with robusta. I used to buy my espresso from a French artisan torrefacteur, and what he made was THE BEST, shame he retired. He used Ethiopian mocha instead of robusta types and sold it to the Italians ...

Not a straight crosswalk, as you say - jelly is used to mean "jello", for "clear" jam, and also for savory jellies eg. aspic, although these are rarely met nowadays. Jam is used where the product is not clear, except when the basis is citrus fruit, which is called orange, lemon, grapefruit or lime marmelade. Marmalade used by itself implies the use of oranges.
