HELP!!! My grape jelly will not set up!

I am making grape jelly for the first time and the second and third batch did not set up. Do I throw it away and try again or is there some way to save it?

  1. Did you do the test on a cold saucer to see if it set on it? If not you may not have cooked it quite long enough. I see things taking longer when using something like Sure-Jel powdered pectin than the Certo liquid. But you may need to cook it a bit longer.
