Quick Answers



I followed the directions for quince jelly in the Joy of Cooking. It did not jell correctly. I had already sealed the jars. My question is: What can I do with this jelly now? Can I re-cook it?

There is a great web site that can answer many questions about problem jams and jellys. See for information on recovering jams and jellies that do not gel the first time.
