Overview

Preserving with Pomona's Pectin: The Revolutionary Low-Sugar, High-Flavor Method for Crafting and Canning Jams, Jellies, Conserves, and More by Allison Carroll Duffy

If you’ve ever made jam or jelly at home, you know most recipes require more sugar than fruit—oftentimes 4 to 7 cups!—causing many people to look for other ways to preserve more naturally and with less sugar. Pomona’s Pectin is the answer to this canning conundrum. Unlike other popular pectins, which are activated by sugar, Pomona’s is a sugar- and preservative-free citrus pectin that does not require sugar to jell. As a result, jams and jellies can be made with less, little, or no sugar at all and also require much less cooking time than traditional recipes, allowing you to create jams that are not only healthier and quicker to make, but filled with more fresh flavor! If you haven’t tried Pomona’s already (prepare to be smitten!), you can easily find the pectin at your local natural foods store, Williams-Sonoma, or online.

In this first official Pomona’s Pectin cookbook, you’ll learn how to use this revolutionary product and method to create marmalades, preserves, conserves, jams, jellies, and more. From sweet offerings like Maple, Vanilla and Peach Jam to savory favorites like Red Pepper and Jalapeno Chutney, you’ll find endless combinations sure to delight all year round!

approachable source for canning inspiration!

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.

I absolutely love this book! I'm new to canning, this is only my second summer attempting to make jam and I find this book and pectin much more successful than my previous year! I have made the blueberry jam with the optional spices added and it is amazing! Tonight I'm off to make the cherry jam and peach jam. I love that the recipes use practically no sugar in comparison to recipes that use ball pectin. The blueberry jam recipe has 1 cup of sugar to 4 cups of mashed fruit! I can't wait to make them all!
