Blackberry canning

Asked August 20, 2018, 12:40 PM EDT

I canned some blackberry jelly. 40% set up fine. Rest are liquidy. How or what can I do to fix this? Thanks.

You did not say if all the jelly was from the same batch or if they were from different batches. If the same batch you might want to wait a few days and see if they set up. If they are from different batches you could remake them following the instructions in the following publication.

The other option is to use them as syrup on pancakes.

Sometime just waiting a week or so they will set up.

If you have other questions you might like to call the OSU Extension Food Preservation Hotline open M-F from 9 am - 4 pm through mid October. The number is 1-800-354-7319. Certified Master Food Preservers are available to answer your questions.
