Question/tip from Ellen: Hi! I just made 4 half pints of the apricot-peach-almond jam. It is delicious and the jam has set perfectly. I have two questions:
1. Can this recipe be doubled?
2. Do smaller canning pots exist? One that would better accommodate half pints?
Answer: Hi Ellen, I love your canning enthusiasm! The recipe can easily be doubled. Just make sure you're not using too small a jamming pot, as you want there to be a good amount of surface area so they jam can cook quickly and evaporate off all superfluous water.
I'm not sure about smaller canning pots. I always use the standard-size one I had at class for my half-pint jars!
