I have just made my first ever two batches of preserves; blueberry and strawberry, since the fruit was on sale and too cheap not to try. Question is - how do I store them? I have preserved them in a water bath following the recipes instruction and they are now cooling on the counter.
My concern is that we live in a desert city and our house is typically around 84-85 degrees during the day. Is this too hot for homemade preserves, should I "store" them in the fridge?
