What will happen if I forgot to add lemon in my canned jelly?

Some jellies taste better with the lemon but it doesn't hurt if you forget it. No one will know unless you tell them.

Quite often the lemon is required to level out the pectin according to the fruit being used, which makes the jell process work, so if you have made it without the lemon, and it has not set up, (jelled well) within a week or two, it is possible you will have to call your jelly a pancake and waffle spread, which i do frequently, on purpose. If it tastes good, just enjoy it. From Loretta in Alabama, who raised 7 by using every means possible to not waste anything edible.
