How long does it take jelly (preserve) using pectin to set?

Thanks all for the suggestions and tips!

Bobcatsteph3 - I actually used another recipe but because the jelly didn't set so I researched online and found the article (link above) which says it can take 2 weeks to set. Further research didn't tell me the reason so I thought I would ask here!

Thanks again for all the help!

Thanks boobird really appreciate your help... hopefully I will hear back soon as I'm hoping to serve my wine jellies this weekend... Need to come up with an alternative if it doesn't work out...

Preserved: Mulled Wine Jelly

Hi Lucy,

the recipe looks amazing and I made a batch yesterday. I checked today but the jelly seems more like a sugar syrup rather than jelly. Does it really take upto 2 weeks to set? am I being impatient? Why does it take 2 weeks to set actually?

Would really appreciate your help!! Many thanks in advance!

Thanks!

Hi

I read in a serious eat article (see link below) that it can take 2 weeks for mulled wine jelly made using pectin to set. I just made a batch and it just 2 days ago and it looks like sugar syrup with wine flavour - is that normal?
