Storing Jam and Jelly
Unless described otherwise in the recipe:
- Cool, dark place - The jelly will keep for about 6 to 12 months if the jars are properly sterilized. If you notice mold forming when you open it, throw the jam away immediately.
- Refrigerator - Store the jam in the fridge after opening. This keeps it good for up to 3 months.
- Frozen - You can freeze jam just fine. Pour into a freezer box up to 1 cm from the rim (the jam will expand in the freezer) and let cool. Or use ice cube trays if you want to freeze the jelly as a portion (choose an ice cube tray with a lid). Let thaw in the refrigerator. The jam has a shelf life of 3 months.
How do you check whether the jam has thickened enough?
Place a plate in the fridge for at least an hour. Then, drop a bit on a cold plate to test if the jam is thick enough. When the drop runs out, the jam has not yet thickened enough. When the drop has been set, the jam is ready. It can then be poured into the jars. Make sure to keep the plate in the fridge in between.
How do you sterilize jam jars?
You sterilize the jars for the jam by immersing them in boiling water and drying them with a clean tea towel. You can also wash them in the dishwasher (screw the lid on immediately when you take them out).
