I made cherry jam last night. One of the jars has about 3/4" of
headspace instead of the 1/4" specified in the BBB recipe. They all
pinged up just lovely.

Can I still store the short one like the other 2 or do I have to put
it in the fridge and use it now?

I've had that happen before and just stored them as I did the rest of
the batch. As long as it is sealed it should stay good.


Thanks, Barb and George! I want to save as much as I can for the
winter.

I always leave that much and never had a problem. Then again, at my altitude
(4,000 ft) we are advised to leave a bit extra. Can't remember the
reasoning for this right now, but there you go.
