How to fix overcooked, overset, or too-thick jam in less than 30 seconds

I recently made several jars of jam to give as Christmas gifts, but had to keep the first batch as it came out so thick it was almost inedible.

I’m also very lazy, so shoving it all back into the pan and mixing in other things to try and thin it out was completely out of the question.

Luckily for me, though, this is 2018 and technology exists!

To spread your thick, overcooked jam on your morning toast simply spoon some onto a saucer and put it in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

2 slices of toast’s worth of my jam took 20 seconds to reach the ideal spreading point, but yours may take more or less time depending on how thick it is and how much you’re microwaving.

Be careful not to burn yourself, though — it will probably be the fruity equivalent of lava when you’re done, so leave it for a few seconds before you try and eat it!
