Tomato Preserves Didn't Set Up

I made tomato preserves last week and it never set up. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. Please tell me what I did wrong and how I can correct it if I did it wrong. I used 4 cups tomato juice, 6 cups of sugar and a lemon wedge. Does it take awhile for it to set up? I even recooked it and added more pectin. That did not help either. Please help.

Some recipes take up to two weeks to set up. Why not try waiting two weeks and see what happens? Good luck!
