Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Measure Precisely
To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon into dry metal or plastic measuring cup, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.
Protect hands with rubber gloves while preparing peppers. To finely chop peppers, place in blender or food processor; cover. Use on/off pulses to evenly chop. (Do not process until pureed.)
Jam or Jelly Didn't Set?
Every once in a while, you may find that your jam does not set the way you expected. If your efforts resulted in a runny batch, try our Remake Directions to improve your finished jam. If your jam still doesn't set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.
