Making candy from jam? Answered
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!
