    Help....My jam won't set

    Help....My jam won't set 14th Jun 07 at 11:30 PM
    I had a very large glut of strawberries after massively over catering last weekend, so decided to make jam with them.
    However, as am trying to be careful with what I eat, I hunted out a diabetic strawberry jam recipe off Google (see below)
    I followed the recipe carefully and made the jam. Left it overnight and it didn't set.
    Went out today and bought more gelatin, added a pack of gelation to every pint of jam. Made it early this afternnoon......just checked half an hour ago, and it still isn't set. What can I do???
    Haven't frozen it you think that will make any difference?

    Diabetic strawberry jam

    4 cup Strawberries, halved
    cup Concentrated white grape juice (simmered down from 1-1/2 cups)
    2 tablespoon Lemon juice
    teaspoon Grated lemon rind
    1 tablespoon Unflavored gelatin (1-1/2 envelops)
    Place berries juices and lemon rind in saucepan. mash berries slightly to release juice. heat to boiling. Sprinkle with unflavored geltatin. Remove from heat, skim and pack into hot jars with hot lids. coool to room temperature before freezing. Because this is stored in the freezer, you may use any airtight, leakproof freezer container for sotrage, even plastic containers. Tastes better if allowed to sit for a week. freezes beautifully for up to 6 months
