Making candy from jam? Answered

Hi! Since I'm not very proficient in food making yet, figured it would be wise to ask for advice. Issue: I have many jars of various jams because grandparents make some every summer-autumn season, yet I only consume it once a week on my binge day and even then there's only so much of it one can eat. Preferred solution: I intend to make some sort of candy from the jam. Most likely something jelly-gummy like, maybe dip that in chocolate/mix some nuts in or do whatever else comes to mind. Basically solidify the jam. So how do I go about doing this? Will adding a lot of gelatine do the trick or should I reduce moisture content too? If so, how? Any other suggestions and bewares welcome too as well as other ways of using jam in bulk! Thanks, Raitis

Hello to anyone reading this, I have a jammed seat belt in a 1998 Ford Taurus, and I was looking for some help with fixing it. I've seen videos on youtube that offers an all-in-one fix for jammed seat belts for various car models (including ford), but I'd like get some opinions here before I consider using the video's steps.

How do I make cheap jam?

I'm looking to make little pots of jam as a wedding favour. Ideally it would be affordable and in season if possible (I'm getting married at the end of June). Although, it would be easier to make the jam well ahead of time. So, I guess what I'm looking to make is cheap but interesting and delicious jam.

Can I use teeny jam jars for candles?

Ive got some teeny 'wilkin and sons' glass jam jars and think they would make really cute candles. though im wondering if they would be too small to be safe. i would most likely use a soy wax as it burns at a lower temperature and maybe a thin wick to keep the flame small. the jars are about the size of a tea light (though the opening wont allow to fit one of those in). anyone got any tips?

CD changer in my Subaru is jammed. Can it be repaired?

I have a 99 Legacy. The stock sound system is an in dash 6 CD changer w/ AM/FM and Cassette. It was modded by a previous owner to accept MP3 or other external source via, I think, the cassette circuitry. Anyways, the unit sounds fine, but it came preloaded with 6 CDs that are apparently stuck inside the unit. I'm a bit unsure as to how to proceed to remove them without causing damage. I don't really care about the CDs themselves, just to protect the unit. Thanks in advance, Jim

Jamming in Paradise (Puerto Rico) - an invitation for musicians and artists to visit

I live in a little piece of paradise, in the forested mountains of Puerto Rico.  Unfortunately, I don't find many musicians near where I live to improvise music with.  Since I have a guest house for visitors, it would be nice to import some musicians to fill it once in a while.  Also artists and other creative people to play with.   I mostly play tootophone, latabonkers, and a variety of other musical instruments I make.  (Search Instructables for tootophone and latabonkers.)  I lean toward improvisational jazz, but can improvise along with just about anything.  I have some recording capability.   Let me know if you might be interested.

Is there any way to mod an Air Blasters Tommy 20 to keep it from jamming? Answered

Okay, I recently bought a Tommy 20 (what was I thinking?) to decorate/mod and make a "needle rifle" out of it with green LED darts (haven't made any designs for those yet) and so I took it home and tested it out. The results almost made me cry. But I figured that I could find a way to fix my problems. I opened it up (my dad doesn't know, shhhh!!!! It's my gun anyway), and I wrapped rubber bands around the drive wheels. It helped a little, but I'm still having problems. The darts aren't being pushed out of the holder far enough, and the ones that don't catch end up getting stuck and causing a huge jam up. Is there anything I can do to the mechanism that pushes these wretched darts forward push farther? Is there a cut I can make in the plastic that lets the darts not jam up? Should I keep the rubber bands on, or even-glue them on? What should I do (I just want it to shoot and not jam-I could care less about accuracy).

Is there any way to disrupt or jam the am /fm radio station .

Is there any way to disrupt or jam the am /fm radio station so when he puts it on we can disrupt the signal. Maybe he would get the hint that the radio no longer works from that window and he would move it somewhere else. Please can anyone help?

Two ibles tabs open, and Dead object jams browser

See the screenshot. The message below (Type error: can't access dead object) appeared in the instructables tab after I accessed a forum topic in another tab. The pop-up completely jammed my browser - I could not close the pop-up (it popped back up instantly), and I could neither close the tab nor even close the browser through normal routes (corner-X, Alt-F4), all I got was a blink of the screen, a warning tone and the pop-up back. I had to shut down and start again.

Open Hardware Toolchain Survey

I'm not sure how many instructables readers/authors identify with the open source community, but what you guys are doing in terms of publicly documenting hardware projects is awesome and makes your perspective especially valuable.  The Open Hardware Toolchain Survey is an attempt to uncover a basic list of user/developer requirements that can be contributed to the documentation discussion and, ultimately, lead to a new generation of collaboration tools.  I would like to personally ask you to take 10-15 minutes to add your perspective and/or pass this request along to anyone you think might be interested. The compiled results of the survey will be made available and will also be used at the OSHWA's DocJam. Not sure if I can post links but you can just google "wareium survey" and it will be right at the top. Matthew Maier

Has anyone hacked a bread machine controller circuit?

I've got an old Breadman (TR333) bread machine and it's still chugging along.  The newer models have more useful programs (like Jam and Pasta) but have horrible flimsy baking pans.  What I'd like to do is reprogram my old solid bread machine to do these new programs.  I've seen the hacks to roast coffee in the bread machines but I don't think they mess with the controller circuit.  I think they just re-wire them to mix constantly and point a heat gun at the beans.

Home recording and playback studio

So ive played guitar/bass in the past but have recently switched to drums the past year. I would like to put together a recording system that would allow me to not only record guitar/bass onto my computer but also allow me to output those recordings to their respective amps simultaneously for playback. I have a buddy that plays guitar so would like to jam out with a bass line as well or when he's not around I can jam out to both. Any ideas of equipment /software that might be needed ?

WiFi Jammer

Alright, I have this friend of mine who is really into pranks, and loves messing with my computer and the computers of his college roommates, so I'm trying to come up with a way to jam his WiFi to get back at him.  I'm not planning on doing anything illegal with it, just trying to mess with him and get him back for all of his shenanigans. Haha To be a bit of help, I have heard/read on google that it is possible to jam a WiFi signal (which usually runs at 2.4 GHz) with a modified cordless phone, also running at 2.4 GHz. Any ideas? Thanks!

how to avoid damage to ground from trashing fruits ?

We have a grapes tree in our garden. the grapes are at their peak now (if left on the tree they will begin to spoil) the grapes are salty like hell and not edible but perhaps can be used to make some jam or something else parents say trash them - no time to bother making the jam + dont know any friends who do either i see a problem with it - trashing them means trashing the minerals from our garden ground. won't it degrade the ground ability to grow stuff ? how to avoid it ? or does trashing them actually help remove excess salt from the ground ? (is the problem with the ground or with the tree itself ?)
