    Thank You for your help
    We have made 3 batches of jelly. All came out well, each time we modified it a little bit.

    4 cups medium syrup, heat to 180 degrees.
    Mix Genugel in half cup cold water in a pyrex measuring cup with electric mixer while syrup is heating up. 2 to 4 minutes
    at 180 we put the mixed genugel in and stirred it in.
    We went slowly to 218 degrees and skimmed the froth off and poured jelly (still liquid) into 7 oz. containers.

    I may try warm water to make genugel mix easier
    The flavor is great, I like it on toast.
    I bought the genugel from a CDL dealer

    Default maple jam using genugel

    How long does it take jam to set? I followed the recipe in the NY State Confection Sugar and heated up to 220. And if does not set what is the recipe to try again. If you are using pectin you can remake it by adding more pectin/sugar. Can that be done with genugel and if so how much genugel?

    It should set up as it cools. You should be able to see it on your spoon or funnel as you fill your jars. You can reheat and add more genugel. The 2 teaspoons per 1/2 gallons works well for me unless I add something such as raspberries or jalapenos. One tablespoon usually works for those. You will have to experiment to see what works for you.

    I would check for what temp the syrup boils at before you add the water and genugel and only go that high to finish it. If you go higher it will crystalize the same as syrup does.

    I think the problem may be not enough genugel. I followed the recipe by NY State Confectionary book which is 4 grams for 1/2 gallon ( which is only one teaspoon). Going to reboil the jars that did not set and add one teaspoon of genugel. This should set it up!
