    Just tried Pomona Pectin for the first time today! Ive made lots of jams and jellies over the years. Today I was very pleased I could make big batches and the directions made it super easy to get the sugar pectin ratio right every batch. All 50 jars have set and I’m super happy that they are all low sugar. The fruit flavor is amazing. I will be using this pectin and recommending it from here on out!!

    I am a professional jam maker with my own small company – and I’ve been using Pomona Pectin for years. My customers love the lower sugar recipes and all of my batches have been perfect. I can scale up batches if I want and the jams still set. Plus Pomona’s has great customer service! And the pectin is shipped very quickly. I can’t recommend this company enough.

    We have been using Pomona’s Pectin for years, but usually in smaller quantities. This year due to having our own trees but also thanks to fruit donations from many many neighbors we made about 200 lbs of jam, without a single fail. Everybody loves the jam, because it taste like fruit and not like sugar and everybody prefers tart over sweet. I always mix, fruit with wine. Cherry plum with sake is heavenly. Whether I have 10 cups of fruit or 20 cups of fruit, I use a maximum of one cup of agave syrup to dissolve the pectin.

    Pomona’s Pectin is terrific! I have been making jam for home use, gifts, and for sale at my brother’s farm markets for many years. It’s so helpful to have the flexibility to make the batches larger and adjust the sweetness without compromising the quality of the jam. Our favorite is Traffic Jam which includes all the fruit that my brother grows (raspberries, strawberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, and blueberries) I highly recommend Pomona’s!!

    Oh, and my original purchase of a 1-lb bag has lasted me for home use for quite a while. If our jam-stand venture takes off, I’ll certainly be ordering more, and more frequently!

    I completely agree with Elizabeth. We like *tart* jams and jellies, not sweet, so we can taste the fruit. This Pomona Pectin never fails me. It’s the only pectin I’ll ever use! Highest recommendation. My neightborhood fruit-stand lady has just recruited me to make small-batch runs of 4-berry jam for her to sell. Her berries are in season now in SoCal, and fantastic, so I guess I’m an entrepreneur again! We’ll be recommending Pomona Pectin to whomever asks about my jams in our joint-venture! Wish us luck!

    This is a fantastic product and I have never had a batch fail due to sugar;pectin ration being off, I am able to scale recipes successfully. The lower sugar recipes are packed with fruit and are not overly sweet. I appreciate this being diabetic., Cannot recommend this product enough.

      Thank you so much Elizabeth!!
