When you talk about what "Jelly" means in German cookbooks, you are discussing translation issues, the cookbooks use different words for sweet and non-sweet gel type dishes. 

Non-sweet gels are "Galrat" which might be better translated as galantine than jelly, a clear rich broth that gels when cold and is sometimes used to decorate a dish of meat.  One dish is a feathered bird poised on a "lake" of galrat.

"Sülze" which is usually translated as aspic is cold meat in a gelled broth.  Both of them sometimes/usually are flavored with vinegar.

Fruit gels are "Confect" or "Latwerge".
