Reprocessing Jelly

Asked February 11, 2020, 11:53 AM EST

I have some pint jars of jelly (set and sealed well) that I would like to reprocess into 4oz jars for gifts. Is it possible to just reboil the jelly and reprocess it in smaller jars?

Hello and thanks for your question. I would not recommend reboiling the jelly and reprocessing into smaller jars. The resulting product is not likely to set well and the quality will be impacted as well. There are instructions available for remaking jellies that are too soft, however, since your jelly has set well, I do not believe you would have a satisfactory product when reboiling the jelly.
