    I agree with all of the above suggestions. And yet, every once in awhile, it happens to me as well, despite taking all precautions. Yes, sometimes I shout at it, " Argh, why?!?" Annoying but then I shrug and use it as coulis, in yogurt, add it to a pan after deglazing chicken or pork...

    I seem to have come up with a coping mechanisim, rather than a solution to these abberations. Or I say as Nicos said above, "It is soft set, I like it that way". It is still better than cement jam (yup, been there and done that too! Useless that.)

    Cement? Haha! Mine is like toffee and if you attempt to eat it your teeth are glued together for hours!

    OK - so long as it's not just me! Thanks for the tips - I'll leave these batches as they are and try some of the ideas next time. Eight boxes to go for the market tomorrow :-)
    I'd upload a picture but it seems like I'm not allowed yet...

    Yes. I do all kinds of upcycling, repurposing, using surplus - and do faris and markets most Saturdays.
