Liquid separating in Peach Pie FIliling

I have peach pie filling that I put up last year (May 2014). I pulled a couple of jars of filling out and it appears that water has separated from the filling. I've not seen this happen before. We used Clear Jel in the filling but it may have been the instant type (we ran out at one point last year). I opened one of the kar this morning and the lid pooped like usual when the sealed broke. The filling smells ok and shows no evidence molding.

Is this filling still safe to use? I've attached a couple pictures of the jar in case that would help.

My pie filling sometimes does the same thing after about a year. It cooks up just fine. I'm sure it's safe since you had a good seal.

Not sure what happens if it's instant clear jel though. If it's runny call it ice cream topping.

I agree with Bookbrat. It should be fine since you got a good seal.
