Comments Off on How can I “repair” too runny/too solid homemade jam/jelly?

It’s very definitely jam season at the moment (in the UK at least) and I thought it might be fun to hear people’s favourite fixes for sticky situations (ho ho!) when the preserves don’t come out quite as you’d hoped. How do you test for the set point? The most common method seems to be the “when it wrinkles on a cold plate” test but anyone use any other methods
