    Yes, pouring out 6 cups of sugar is so incredibly disturbing!! Glad you got the consistency of your jelly straightened out. I had runny jelly once and redoing the pectin didn’t work. A friend with more jelly experience than me told me that sometimes it can take days for the jelly to set up, although it usually firms up overnight.
    Congratulations on the upcoming festivities!

      Yes, super cringe-worthy! It almost made me reconsider making the jelly!

      I also read some not so great stories about the pectin still not working. I tried the jelly again this morning and the texture is perfect, so I’m happy it worked out.
