I made peach jam yesterday and it still has not set. I used Sure Jel pectin and followed the directions. Is there anything I can do fix it?

These are the instructions I found
*Here's what you can do.
If it still hasn't set, it's time to open all the jars back up.

1-Pour the jam into your widest pot..
2-Set heat to high and begin to bring the jam to temperature.
3-Whisk in one tablespoon of powdered pectin as it heats.
4-Cook vigorously until jam appears visibly thickened.

I personally wouldn't bother to recook as you could totally ruin it and that would be sad.

What I used to do was just use it like syrup on pancakes, ice cream, or over strawberry shortcake (a surprisingly yummy combo). It needs to be refrigerated and keeps a week or so.

I never could figure out why one time it would work and the next time not. It is disappointing. It is good as a "condiment" though.

This probably happened because it wasn't cooked long enough for it to jell. It isn't a good idea to try and cook it again. You should just use this now as a topping on cakes, ice cream or even waffles or pancakes. it will be excellent.

The next time you cook a batch of jam, you should take a spoon and let it cool for a second to see if it will start to jell. If not you will need to cook it a bit longer.
