Jam sesh

I made a gallon of plum jam and accidentally added too much sugar. It's very sweet. Too sweet. Can I gloop it all out of the jars and cook it with more fruit and more pectin to cut the sweetness, or does jam chemistry not work that way?

I have no shortage of plums, so that's not an issue.

Open to any other suggestions as well.

You can reprocess it no problem. If you phone/email the company that makes your pectin they can advise on proportions.

You can totally do this. I have done it with jam consistency mistakes and also when I forgot to add lemon zest to a batch of raspberry plum jam and was very sad.

Totally works, and be sure to add some finely diced jalepeƱo.
