Pour into hot, dry, sterilized jars. Seal jars with cellophane the top of which has been dipped in rum and smooth the overhang over the jars necks, tying with thin twine. Makes 12 half-liter jars and one quarter-liter jar. (Between 13 and 14 1 pint jars). "Einsiedehilfe" (Preserving Aid) is sold (in Austria) in 15 gram packages and consists of 65 percent sugar and 35 percent benzoic acid. To test for setting point: Spoon a little of the conserve onto a chilled saucer. Leave for a few minutes - then hold saucer upside down. If conserve doesnt run, then setting point has been reached.
