marmalade not set

I made orange marmalade jam for the first time 3 weeks ago and it's still runny. Do you think I could pour it back into a pot and add a package of pectin and re-process? My mother was my "answer all" and she passed away a few years ago but this was her favorite web site. Thanks

You could or you could just wait. Marmalade is a notorious slow-setter sometimes and can take as long as 6 weeks to set up.


RE: marmalade not set

I agree with waiting a few more weeks first. If you end up re-processing I wouldn't add a whole package of regular pectin. I would add a few teaspoons of either Pomona, or Ball No Sugar Needed Pectin. Ball just repackaged their No Sugar Pectin with instructions to use it this way. I was so upset, the regular size box would last for many batches. Anyway you this way you won't have to add more sugar.

Thanks for the info. I read that it may take two weeks to set so I will wait a few more and see how it goes. Thanks again.
