Fruit "leather" jelly repair?

Asked March 12, 2014, 7:54 AM EDT

I made a new type of jelly for me (sour cherry) and my jelly turned out leathery. I know what went wrong. My question is: can I place small amounts (if so, how much per pint) of this fruit leather jelly in the jars for a new batch, and have the hot liquid jelly melt the leather and the jelly set to proper consistency?

Trying to remake a stiff jam or jelly for long-term storage is not expected to result in a quality product and is not recommended. However, you may visit the National Center for home food preservation's website for suggested uses for stiff jams and jellies here: http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_07/stiff_jelly.html
