Mushy (jarred) Gefilte Fish

alwayshungrygal | Apr 1, 2013 12:47 PM

Greetings hounds. Quite a few times, jarred gefilte fish not exposted to liquid has turned soft and mushy or moldy. If kept fully immersed, then it's fine. Although, a few weeks ago, the last piece in the last jar I opened, was complete mush when I tried to get it out of the jar.

I'm alone at home, so sometimes the jar will be in the fridge for weeks before I comsume all the pieces. In the jar I consumed this week (being Passover, I ate a piece almost every day) I proactively separated the pieces into different containers, but the tops--not immersed in liquid)--still turned soft. This, after less than 2 weeks after opening the jar.

Does anyone have any hints as to what I should do (or add) to preserve the GF? Typically I buy gefilte fish in jellied jars so I'm not sure what to do.

Thanks and Happy Passover!
