Kiwi-Raspberry-Lime Jam

Kiwi-Raspberry-Lime Jam is a low-sugar or low-honey cooked jam made with Pomona’s Universal Pectin. Pomona’s Pectin contains no sugar or preservatives and jells reliably with low amounts of any sweetener.
Servings 5 cups


  • 3 cups hand-mashed kiwi peeled (2 pounds)
  • 1 cup mashed raspberries (12 ounces)
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice + zest of 1 lime, optional
  • 2 teaspoons calcium water see step #1
  • cups sugar or ¾ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons Pomona’s Pectin mixed with sweetener


  • Before you begin, prepare calcium water.
    To do this, combine ½ teaspoon calcium powder (in the small packet in your box of Pomona’s pectin) with ½ cup water in a small, clear jar with a lid. Shake well.
    Extra calcium water should be stored in the refrigerator for future use.
  • Wash jars, lids, and bands. Place jars in canner, fill canner 2/3 full with water, bring to a boil. Turn off heat, cover, and keep jars in hot canner water until ready to use. Place lids in water in a small sauce pan; cover and heat to a low boil. Turn off heat and keep lids in hot water until ready to use.
  • Measure mashed kiwi and raspberries into sauce pan.
  • Add calcium water and lime juice, and mix well.
  • Measure sugar or room temperature honey into a bowl. Thoroughly mix pectin powder into sweetener. Set aside.
  • Bring fruit mixture to a full boil. Add pectin-sweetener mixture, stirring vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes to dissolve the pectin while the jam comes back up to a boil. Once the jam returns to a full boil, remove it from the heat.
  • Fill hot jars to ¼” of top. Wipe rims clean. Screw on 2-piece lids. Put filled jars in boiling water to cover. Boil 10 minutes (add 1 minute more for every 1,000 ft. above sea level). Remove from water. Let jars cool. Check seals; lids should be sucked down. Eat within 1 year. Lasts 3 weeks once opened.

    Can you use Strawberries instead of the Raspberries, and follow the remainder of this recipe

    This looks good. Does the juice need to be bottled for acidity or just a juiced lime?

      On this recipe, it is just for taste, so fresh is just fine!
