TAKE THE JAM OFF THE HEAT. Place a splodge of jam on the chilled plate and leave for a minute. Does it wrinkle when you push it with your finger? If so it is ready. Otherwise get that jam back to the boil for another minute and test again,

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.
