Runny Peach Preserves

The first batch I made was a little on the runny side. Can I just double the amount of pectin for a firmer product?

Probably, but it sure would taste good over ice cream or as a topping for cake or bread pudding.
S'up to you!

We prefer preserves that are not too thick or stiff ; For example, they're easier to spread on pancakes
