Just tried to make blackberry jelly (bad idea, 5pm, 2 starving & tired children, dh trying to light bbq) and think I overcooked it so it's now well & truly stuck inside the jar - can I rescue it??

Can you put the jar into a larger pan with hot water -might that soften it a bit?

Will the jar be okay in hot water?

Yeah it should be - think you can steiles glass by boiling jars for a few mins (at least)

<disclaimer - am most definitely not a jam maker grin >

Thank you so much - it was saved! And actually edible!
