Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Failed Jams and Jellies

kitchen quick tips

Occasionally when making jams or jellies you will get a set failure where the jam or jelly fails to set up to the proper gel state.  Don't despair!  Sealed jars can be safely stored then used as glazes for meats or syrups for ice cream and pancakes.  They can also be used in cooking.

Hi Linda :) It's a good way to use up jams and jellies that haven't set firm enough. Please let me know how your canning progresses.
