    One of my favorite things in life is jam on my toast, English muffin or bagel.

    I mostly like the berry type jams such as blackberry, boysenberry, raspberry and strawberry but they seem to be going seedless.

    I tasted seedless strawberry jam today and it was yuck.

    I'm fine with manufacturers offering seedless jam for those who want it but the direction seems to be headed towards seedless. To me, jam doesn't taste the same or have the same consistency without the seeds. Why must everything be processed to oblivion.

    I was just wondering how others feel about it or perhaps I'm one of the few who like chunks of fruit in my jam.

    I'm partial to orange marmalade on an English muffin or cream cheese on a bagel.... seeds from jam get caught in my bridge work and drive me crazy... blackberry jelly is not bad and doesn't have the seeds. btw, this reply belongs in Boring Post thread.

    I was debating whether my topic belonged in the boring posts thread before I put it up. :wink2:

    There are legitimate reasons why some do not like seeds in their jam.

    Of course you are joking but I bet the manufacturers are using the seeds for something... maybe some kind of feed.

    Taking the seeds out of strawberry jam seems like a bit of a reach.

    Is everything
    What brand(s) are you using? If it's highly processed perhaps they are not really using much strawberry in the product which could explain a lack of seeds. Flavorists working their magic.

    It's the seedless variety of strawberry jam, or any jam, that I don't like. I have tried a lot of different brands where fruit is the first ingredient and the result is the same.

    It probably dates back to my youth where I grew up picking wild blackberries and raspberries. I used to bring them home and my mom would make a cobbler out of it. Needless to say it was delicious. So I got used to the seeds early.

    Now when manufacturers start taking the seeds out of their product I notice.

    I guess I got spoiled. :D

    Good. I hate having the seeds so I stick to jelly. I also hate juice with pulp. You shouldn't be swallowing chunks while drinking. I think this comes from when I was a child & drank milk by mistake that had soured & had chunks in it.

    That is a downer to drink clabbered milk. I've done that by accident as well.

    Naturally I like orange juice with the most pulp. I guess I have an ongoing feud with processed foods. I like breads that have grain parts in it as well.
