  • It may firm up, or you may not have added enough thickener, or didnt boil it long enough. Generally jam is loose, so untill you open a well set jar you wont know. When you do and it's too runny for you go back to your resipe and see how much thickener you put in for the recipe. Add more next time if it wasnt enough to get the consistency you wanted.
