I tried. It didn’t quite work. I know what went wrong, though, so I’m going to work on a solution today.
A package of cranberries + a few jars of orange marmalade (not jelled, remember?) should have made a delicious jam.
Well, it jelled well and the flavor was good, but I added too much sugar. It was grainy. I think I measured the amount of sugar based on raw fruit and forgot that the marmalade was already sweetened.
Now what? I have one more option, and one more package of pectin. If I incorporate more raw fruit from the freezer, raspberries or strawberries, it might work. Step one: clean the kitchen so I actually have room to work. Step two: give it a try. What do you think, readers, will it work? I’ll let you know!
