If the first batch of jelly from a particular lot of fruit is too soft, what changes should be made in the next batch?


If the first batch of jelly from a particular lot of fruit is too soft, adjust the proportions of fruit or the cooking time for the next batch:

 

In products made with added pectin - for a firmer product, use one-fourth to one-half cup less fruit or juice

 

In products made without added pectin - for a firmer product, lengthen the cooking time.
