Bad news about the jelly

I checked this morning, and it didn't gel. So off I went after mass to Canadian Tire, to pick up some more pectin, plus some proper canning tongs and a jelly bag. I also got a booklet on canning, and it does say that sometimes it can take more than 24 hours for jelly to set. They recommend waiting a week, and if it hasn't jelled in that time, then recook it and try again. I think I'll do that; it's gotten so hot now, I'm not too anxious to fill up pans with boiling water for the afternoon, and maybe it won't even be necessary.
