Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Pectin, a naturally occurring substance in fruit, is required for jellies and jams to solidify. Since not all fruits have enough natural pectin to gel, recipes often call for commercial pectin, which requires a large amount of sugar to work. Pomona's Universal Pectin does not, however; it works with calcium and allows canners to produce a variety of preserves using less sugar. In her first book, master food preserver and blogger Duffy (canningcraft.com) introduces a wide selection of jams, jellies, and conserves using this low-sugar method. While the recipes have some simplistic instructions (every recipe has the same first two steps), accompanying tips allow canners to customize their sweeteners; the book also includes a review of canning supplies and techniques. VERDICT The unique recipes and low-sugar options for preserving will make this cookbook a favorite among home canners.—Kristi Chadwick, Emily Williston Lib., Easthampton, MA

    Finally - new recipes, reliable set up!

    I had given up on jellies and jams - the failure rate was just too high for the amount of effort I put in. I was also a little tired of the same recipes again and again - standard pectin and the good ol' BBB and BCGHC just leave no room for creativity or imagination (presumably for safety's sake, although I once heard somewhere that the only way a properly processed jar of jam or jelly or pickles could hurt you is if someone threw one at your head). At last, a book of new, delicious recipes that are completely different than anything that existed before, and using a pectin that has never failed me. I can't say enough good things about this book and about Pomona's Universal Pectin.
