Try a little on a dish; if it jellies when cold it is done.. and should then be poured in to very clean pots..
My grandmother used to cover with oiled paper and then greaseproof paper - brushed on both sides, with unbeaten egg white . . . . . before storing in a dry place . . . . . the latter probably improved on today . . . screw top jars. .
Allow 1½ pints of fruit to a 1 lb jar...
