RECIPE: Runny Marmalade?
I made marmalade for the first time, and I made TWO batches... The first batch is happily solid in the jars... It might even be TOO solid. I put a little of that batch (the stuff that wouldn't fit in a jar) in the fridge, though, and it's DELICIOUS and not too solid but not runny either... just the way I like it.
MY QUESTION (I was getting to it!)... The SECOND batch I made is "sloshy" in the jars... I sealed and boiled them last night, but when I TIP the jars (not sure if I'm even supposed to do that but whatever) the jelly moves from side to side. Will it solidify more as it "sets"? If it does, I think it will be fine. Also, if it's this "soft", is it more likely to spoil? If it is, I'll just make it into the "refrigerator jam" and stick it in there now. (I don't want to reprocess the jars... I'd rather just buy bagels for work and eat it sooner if you don't think it's shelf stable...)
Any help you could offer is great! I'm totally new at this... Thanks in advance. :)
