Hi Maggie, welcome to the forum.  You'd be better off posting in the Jam, Chutney and Preserves section near the top of the page, we have quite a few expert jam/jelly makers who would be more likely to see and answer your question up there.

Also, perhaps you'd like to make a post in the Introduce Yourself thread?  We do like to know more about new members, we're a nosey lot here! big_laugh  Oh, and I see you're from a rural area in Somerset.....snap!!!

Hi Maggie! lovely to meet you, there is a special place for Jams etc, as Sue Said. I would not re-pot, myself, but if I did, I would have to heat up Jam again, and sterilize  the Jars. Might depend on whether you intend it for long term keeping. Just make some more Jam , and use your pretty jars! That's what I would do. Tina x
