  • Cooking it the right length of time is key. Too long, and it will be like cement. Too short, and it will be like syrup. And when you put it in the jars, be sure to water bath it for the length of time suggested to make sure you get a good tight seal.

  • careful with the amounts, it will be too thick or not thick enough, add a teaspoon of butter so it is not so foaming when you boil the mix
