My beet jelly sealed but did not set. Is there anything I can do?

I had made beet jelly last year for the first time, and my family loved it. So I decided to make some more this year. I followed the directions exactely as I had the previous year and had realized (out of 16 pints, 5 jelly, and 1 half jelly jars) that 14 pints and 1 jelly jar did not set, but they sealed. I gave them a week and looked at them again and they thickened up a tiny bit (to the texture of runny jello). I put one jar in the fridge for a day and it was still the same consistancey. Is there anything I can do now to get them to set? Or should I just wait and see if over time they will thicken? Right now my only other option (to not waste a still very tasty product) is to use it as a syrup for pancakes or french toast. The only problem is we don't use syrup nearly as much as we do jam/jelly. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Only thing that I can think of is to open all the jars and cook the contents until  it is thicker then you must wash the jars again & boil them & put new seal rings on and can again.
