Looking for Pomona's (sugar-free) pectin?
I am trying to make a strawberry jam that requires less sugar, and I was suggested to use Pomona's pectin. However, I am having trouble locating this (neither Noah's or Whole Foods carries it.) Would anyone know where I could find this in the GTA, preferably downtown if possible?
Have jammed for 40+ years, never seen the brand in Canada, could import if you really need. Suggest using Certo Light (Certo liquid uses highest proportion of sugar:fruit, next is Certo crystals regular, least Certo Light crystals). Bernardin has a l"no sugar needed" version with recipes using reduced proportions of sugar, the smallest of which would certainly produce softer set, or with non-sugar sweeteners. Good luck!
re: rat under paper
You can buy online from the Canadian distributor and keeps a long time if kept in a glass jar. www.harvest-plus.com It is featured in a lot of the recipes from "Put'Em Up! by Sherri Brooks Vinton which I bought based on the modern recipes and its guide to drying and freezing as well. You only need a tsp or tablespoon for most recipes. Here is a description of Pomona Pectin from an american distributor.
I would like to hear from people who may have used it before and what their results were with various sweeteners.
