Sooo, THIS just happened. I had used my new Victorio Steam Juicer on some Pin Cherries I had picked and frozen late last summer. I was curious as to whether the Jelly would set without pectin but decided to chance it. In my defence, Kevin infected me with a summer cold, so I'm blaming the cold medication 100% for this fiasco. (damn you to hell generic brand cold and flu pills). Everything was set. The jars were sterilizing on one element. The lids were softening on another.
