Advice needed! I have made some marmalade to give as xmas present and followed the recipe however it hasn’t set. I Jarred it yesterday thinking it would set like Jam but it hasn’t. I’ve read similar post which say to reboil it but can I after it’s been jarred for 24 hours? I would resterlised th jars etc but not sure if I should do this at this stage. Any advice would be amazing!!!

There should be no problem at all. Did you check its setting on a cold plate with your finger?

Did you put some lemon juice in? That should help too.

Thanks everyone. Didn’t use Seville’s , found a recipe with normal oranges , grapefruit and lemons. I reboiled and it worked! Although it’s much darker than yesterday but it tasted ok!
