Kosher pectin?

I have a jelly recipe I want to try, and it calls for pectin. Does anyone know where to get parve pectin in the NY area, preferably in Queens?

BTW, I know that pectin is a fruit product, and one would think it would naturally be parve, but Certo Sure-Jell is listed on the OK Labs website as being OK-D. Since I'd like to use the jelly with shabbos fleishig meals, that does me little good.

If we were out in rural America, I imagine pectin, along with other canning supplies, would be found in every supermarket, but here in the big city, I can't ever recall seeing it. But maybe I just haven't noticed? Any jelly-makers out there with any info for me?

  1. there is a company in Indiana called Jarden that makes canning products and they are certified kosher pareve by the crc. their number is (765) 281-5002. if you call them they may be able to help.

      BTW, Jarden Brands sells under the "Ball" name. I have a box of Ball original fruit pectin and there is no kosher info on the box.
