This was a very fun experience. I loved making this jelly and felt confident after my conversation with Pomona’s Pectin and all their wonderful instructions.The jelly is such a pretty pink color and the flavor and sweetness were just right for me.
Commercial pectin is in fact derived from natural sources, usually apples or citrus rinds. However, they’re pretty opaque about how it’s made, so we cannot know if they pass the Unprocessed sniff test. Fortunately, you can make your own.
