Quick Answers

 

 

Can I double a jam or jelly recipe?


Never double a jelly or jam recipe. If a double batch of jelly or jam is cooked for the usual time, it will be undercooked--which means the jelly or jam will be soft and runny. If boiled longer, it will have a caramelized flavor and dark color.
