I have made some fab tasting fruits of the forest jelly from an assortment of berries I have accummulated in my freezer.  I have over boiled it so it is so rubbery its almost like chewing a fruit pastille.  Can I melt it all down with some water and reboil?  Any ideas???  Delbee

Yes you can - it's easy. I wrote an article about it here on the blog.

Hi Fiona,

Just to let you know that I managed to extract the jelly from the jars (I now have one very bent spoon) and added warm water.  I melted the jelly down and after a very short boil, I re- jarred and it seems to have worked!!!  I didn't take note of how much water, but I guess it was at least equal to the amount of jelly.  Thanks Delbee.
