本人閱讀童書Amelia Bedelia系列,主角Amelia Bedelia是一名女幫傭。女主人交代:

"If you have time, make a jelly roll. Great-Aunt Myra does love jelly roll."

主人離開後,她開始工作且在書中自言自語:

"Jelly! Roll!" exclaimed Amelia Bedelia. "I never heard tell of jelly rolling." But Amelia Bedelia got out a jar of jelly. Amelia Bedelia tried again and again. But she just could not get that jelly to roll.

我的問題是:

可以分析一下 "I never heard tell of jelly rolling." 這句的文法嗎?tell在這是動詞嗎?可以省略tell的主詞嗎?
怎麼翻譯這句呢?

感恩。
