The general characters of a soap are a certain greasiness to the touch, ready solubility in water, with formation of viscid solutions which on agitation yield a tenacious froth or " lather," an indisposition to crystallize, readiness to amalgamate with small proportions of hot water into homogeneous slimes, which on cooling set into jellies or more or less consistent pastes.
One group of furniture historians thinks that the concept of a "jelly cupboard" was used in various regional vernaculars throughout the United States, referring to a cabinet that held preserved foods, not just jellies and jams.
Most often the jelly cabinet was kept in the kitchen where the jams and jellies would be prepared and then used throughout the winter months.
You can eat them right off the plants, or use them to make pies, jams and jellies.
