Made 2 batches of this a few days ago. Absolutely delicious, lovely flavour.
Sadly, today I see that some jars are showing flecks of mould, despite thoroughly washing and sterilising jars, lids etc.
Have just re-boiled it, reducing from 11 jars to 8.
Now I know it is probably my own fault, as I reduced the sugar I used as we just find 1lb to 1 pint of juice as simply too sweet for us nowadays, but I know that the sugar is the preservative.
Also, I did 1 ‘set’ batch, but deliberately left the second batch runnier, more like a thick syrup, as we like it poured over Greek yogurt.
The re-boiled lot will be more ‘set’, but just hope it keeps ok.
Do you think I should store it in the fridge?
The last lot wasn’t.
Should say, it was both original batches that showed mould, not just the runnier one.
