Sugar reduced Jam

By: on 30 April 2020
My first attempt at making reduced apricot jam (from a failed preserving attempt which had been frozen) using Pomona’s Pectin was an amazing success. I love the colour of the fruit whose taste really shines through. And I can’t detect any chemical taste at all. One thing I did do was swap the lemon juice with the citric acid equivalent and it worked perfectly. My first jar of jam had a complete bread bypass! Looking forward to seeing how marmalade stacks up :-)

Great Product, Great Supplier

I like to make various jams & marmalades for family and friends and prefer to use 50-80% less sugar than the usual recipes suggest. Consequently I have often had trouble with getting to jams to set properly. I have tried other setting products but this year tried Pomona Pectin from What a difference it made ... every one of my various jam & marmalade batches set perfectly at around 102ºC - definitely will use this Pomona Pectin again for all future jam & marmalade making. Delivery from was super quick also - certainly better than most of the online retailers I've experienced over the past 5yrs of buying such preserving products online.

Fantastic product !

I'm REALLY delighted with Pomona's Pectin which I happened upon by chance and bought ' on spec ' . I've previously tried making very low sugar jams with depressing results as the ' set ' was always a problem and I'd have to reduce the jam too much , giving a poor quality end product . The 2 jams I've made so far are perfect : the first was a strawberry freezer jam recipe in the Pomona packet leaflet , an almost no cook method , having a beautifully fresh flavour with a perfect jell . The second jam is a chunky quince jam recipe of mine I adapted as I went , following guidelines in the Pomona leaflet again , achieving a perfectly set very low sugar jam .
