Pectin is a naturally occurring product in fruit, that helps the setting of jam. Some fruits have less pectin than others, and the riper the fruit gets the less pectin there is.
Pectin is a substance in fruits that forms a gel if it is in the right combination with acid and sugar. All fruits contain some pectin. Apples, crab apples, gooseberries and some plums and grapes usually contain enough natural pectin to form a gel. Other fruits, such as strawberries, cherries and blueberries, contain little pectin and must be combined with other fruits high in pectin or with commercial pectin products to obtain gels. Because fully ripened fruit has less pectin, one-fourth of the fruit used in making jellies without added pectin should be under-ripe.
The proper level of acidity is critical to gel formation. If there is too little acid, the gel will never set; if there is too much acid, the gel will lose liquid (weep). For fruits low in acid, add lemon juice or other acid ingredients as directed.
Please note: Pure Pectin may clump as it is added to your jam, so it is advisable to mix it with a small amount of the sugar from your recipe, to make mixing it in, easier.

Successful PectinBy: Harold Morgan on 26 June 2023Thank goodness I have found a Pectin that really works, others I have used lump up when added to hot jams and marmalades during the boiling process. Your powder Pectin works brilliantly every time
Great for preserve makingBy: Katie on 7 August 2022Great value for money and extremely handy to have if you seasonly preserve using traditional jam methods (hot set, long life jam). There are ratios on the packaging which makes it easy to add to your jam. Shipping was prompt and product came well packaged in long life seal bag. We’ll be ordering more once we get through this lot.
Super PectinBy: Malcolm D on 28 April 2022Bought the 100gram pack and made the Cumquat season's first Marmalade. The pectin performed even better than expected with a beautiful set. 15 grams per 1 kg of fruit was a little too strong but, next time I'll reduce it a little.
Classic PectinBy: Jenny on 14 February 2022Delicious strawberry jam made using this pectin. Thanks
Great PectinBy: Andrew on 4 April 2021Have tried a few types of pectin, but this one gives me excellent, consistent results across all my jam making, from apple/rhubarb/cinnamon though to clear lime/lemon marmalade. Plus really quick service form Green Living Australia.
