Tell us how many open cans of jelly/jam/preserves are in there. Dig around to get an accurate count.

I had 3 open, 1 unopen. Been strategically using them one at a time. I now have the proper "one" jar.

Thought maybe i'm not the only one. Lol. Wanna share your quantities?

One.  There's always just one unless I ate it and haven't opened a new one yet or if it's canning season and a couple didn't seal.  

Then again I don't need to have grape and aronia and chokecherry all available at the same time, any is good enough.

Three - my wife's favorite is blackberry, I prefer Strawberry, and a weird jar of a  friends' home-made grape "jelly" that I eat when I'm desperate for sweets.

I'm also making tangerine marmalade soon, so it will be four - what's wrong with me!?!

so true. I have 2 opened. One is an awesome cranberry jam my father in law made last year and one somewhat strange plum jam a patron at the library gave me that I eat between cranberry containers.

None

We have a tiny dorm refrigerator so there is no digging around.

It has a half quart of sauerkraut, ground flax seed, ground buckwheat, ground  chia seed, a bit of celery, some cooked basmati, hemp nuts, fresh ginger root, liquid b vits, frozen garbonzos and some frozen navy beans.......usually greens and cabbage and carrots but we just ate them.

We obviously need some jam!!!

Two! A jar of lemon curd and a jar of Major Gray's chutney :9
There is also a jar of mint sauce, don't know if it counts. It was cheap after the holidays at one of the discount stores I hit, thought I'd try it.
Honestly, normally there is one more. My mom doesn't like my lemon curd or the Major Gray's, so she usually has something open, raspberry was the last, I think.

I make seriously heavy bread that's bean based, and three day fermented that goes amazing with the Major Gray's :)

Edit: Oops,one of the other posts reminded me I do have homemade apple/squash butter in there. I canned down the rest, but a small jar didn't fit, so it's in the fridge...  That also is excellent on my heavy duty bread :D

Only one at the moment, homemade apple butter. We had two going when the kids and grandkids were here for the holidays, but looks like we finished off the strawberry jam.

That apple butter will taste yummy on fresh sourdough bread tomorrow night. 😋

We are at the new place, in MO, today, so - none!
Friday we're going back to IL, and I happen to know there are 4, there.  All different, because which I choose depends on what I've a taste for. Propriety, be damned, lol.
