Jam to runny fruit going to the top

Not enough sugar.
Too much liquid.
Not boiled long enough.
Not enough Pectin in the fruit, so you need to add it.

Fruit will always float to the top. Strawberry jam suffers with this a lot.

You can fix by re-boiling and adding pectin.

Sep 2, 2016 - Just wait. You've followed the recipe to a T and even tested the jam for thickness by smearing a bit of the cooked jam on a cold spoon straight from the freezer, but it still looks runny in the canning jars after processing. Add chia seeds. Cook it again. Add pectin. Cook it in a low oven.

In canon IR6000 the paper is jam in duplex

Never worked a canon before, but a printer is a printer. Usually cased by worn out rollers or the paper setting on the tray can cause jams. Make sure the tray rollers are textured and not smooth. I'd start there.

My huckelberry/raspberry cooked jam did not setup on a couple of batches using pectin. can i reprosses it again by adding more pectin?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm so sorry but you have posted to the wrong forum, either that or this is the first time on FixYa that someone has used a washing machine to process jam ;-0)

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Just made a batch of boysenberry jam (first attempt) and I think I may have boiled it too long as it's really chewy.

That's the usual issue- although I find it could have been too much pectin. Try halving the pectin you used with the first batch. Boysenberries IIRC are rather heavy on natural pectin

Hi I've been trying to print onto a 260gsm card but it keems jamming the printer. is there anyway of preventing the jam and printing on this high quality card?

Unfortunatly not all printers support a high quality paper. Some paper will have a silk like finish that makes the rollers hard to grab on. Others like the 260gsm card kind of have a texture so it is easy however it may be too thick for the rollers.

System restore cant restore computer to earlier times and ad-aware freezes mid scan

Go to a friends computer and search for "Trinity Rescue CD version 3.3", try to get build 321 or greater. Burn the ISO file you download on to a CD blank and then set the computer to boot from CD (This setting should be in the BIOS settings). Boot with the Trinity Rescue CD you just created and make sure the computer is plugged into a known good network connection (not a modem connection but a cable or DSL connection) chose item number 6 (I think) on the menu. Item #6 should be "Virus scan non-interactive" Be aware that you only have 10 seconds to choose the item you want from the menu before Trinity Rescue CD boots. use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move up and down the menu. After you choose Virus scan non-interactive, the computer will reach out to the internet and update it's virus checkers and scan your computer for viruses and rootkits. This might take a while. If you have a larger hard drive (80GB or larger) try this before you go to bed and let the Virus scan run all night. When it is done scanning (it will scan your hard drive with 5 different virus scanners) it will have a command prompt (DOS) type screen type "exit" and remove the CD and reboot your computer using the hard drive and THEN try to run Lavasoft ad-aware or Spybot Search and Destroy.
