The taste is good, but it separated as it set. It's like a jelly on the bottom of the jar and a jam on top? Any suggestions?

This is wonderful. It is easy, delicious and I will keep making this over and over again. My husband didn't like the last batch of Strawberry Jam I made. But this, he just loves. I put the rhubarb and strawberries in the blender with a little water, about 3 tablespoons and chopped them. Then added the sugar, and followed the rest of the directions. I made this a week ago and made 2 quarts. I am down to about 1/3 the 2nd quart. I will be making more this weekend. This is THE BEST!
