My mom had a batch of blueberry jelly go wrong or totally right depending on how you look at it. She tried some new pectin jell that didn’t quite set up right, so we ended up with blueberry syrup. At first we weren’t quite sure what to do with this liquid opps, but then the possibilities became endless and ever optimistic!
