Strawberry jam glitch: fix it

The homemade strawberry jam is delicious. But what do you do if it’s leaking? Read on for a recipe to fix failed strawberry jam. It’s summer. Strawberry season is coming to an end. Raspberries and blueberries are right around the corner. The berries are just wonderful; you can eat them anyway. I enjoy them fresh in a bowl, on my cereal or ice cream, in a frozen smoothie, or on a cake. In fall and winter, there’s nothing like homemade strawberry jelly on your favorite toast or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

There are many good jam recipes. I used a standard boxed pectin recipe with fresh strawberries picked from a local farm. My mouth was watering from the homemade strawberry jam. I have never had a failure in the preparation of my jams, but this year I have. It was leaking. It would make a great ice cream topper for Sundays.

Most cooking mistakes can be corrected, so I researched my options. I called the 800 number for the pectin box. The helpline operator had no information on how to fix the leaking jam. Then I called the local Cooperative Extension. Over the years, I have found that they are a great source of information. This year, they came to the rescue, again. Here is the recipe to fix the failed strawberry jam. You can use this recipe to make up to 8 cups of liquid marmalade. These servings are per cup of jam.

2 tablespoons of sugar 1 tablespoon of water 1 ½ teaspoon of powdered pectin

Mix pectin and water; bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Add liquid strawberry jam and sugar and stir constantly. Bring the mixture to a full boil over high heat. Boil for ½ minute. Then remove the pot from the heat. Remove the top of a foam that may have formed. Put jam in hot jars and use new lids. Process the jam in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Let the jars sit overnight.
