Pomona's Universal Pectin makes thick jam and jellies with rich, full flavor undiluted by large amounts of added sugar. Ordinary fruit pectins require your jam or jelly to be 55-85% sugar to set firmly.
Pomona's Universal is a low methoxyl type pectin derived form citrus peels and pulp. Its jelling power is activated by the calcium naturally present in most fruits, not by sugar content. (Box contains a separate portion of monocalcium phosphate for use with fruits especially low in calcium.)
INGREDIENTS: Low Methoxyl, Citrus Pectin and Monocalcium Phosphate (packed separately - assists gel of low calcium fruits). No sugar or preservatives.
- Concentrated: 1 box makes approximately 20 cups of jam.
- Other uses: Aspics, glazes, milk pudding or as a gelatin substitute.
- Keeps indefinitely. Store cool and dry. Excellent directions are provided.
