June Jamming Giveaway with Pomona’s Pectin

It’s time to jump into jamming season, and we’ve partnered with Pomona’s Pectin to help you get started.June Jamming Giveaway

Two very lucky winners will receive

Pomona’s Pectin is a sugar-free, preservative-free, low-methoxyl citrus pectin. If you are looking for a way to cut back on the sugar in your preserves, this is the pectin for you! It allows you to sweeten jam & jelly to your taste with low amounts of any sweetener.

The book, Preserving with Pomona’s Pectin, boasts recipes for more than 70 jams, jellies, preserves, conserves and marmalades…all with intense natural flavors without all of the added sugar!

Pomonas Basics

The book is filled with tips on making the best out of your preserving experience, wisdom on how to safely and effectively customize your recipes and color images to inspire you! For instance, this chapter takes on some of the science of canning preserves in a thorough, but manageable level. If you feel like you’re new to canning, it’s written in such a way that the idea of trying a different pectin isn’t overwhelming. There’s even a table that gives weight and unit or volume equivalents. For example – if your recipe calls for a pound of kiwi, about how many kiwi will that be? Well, according to their chart, 5 – 6 medium kiwis. I do have a scale in my kitchen, but this is even more helpful for me when I’m heading to the market or am trying to determine whether or not I have enough fruit on hand for a particular recipe.Pomona's Jam

Here are a few jam recipes where we’ve enjoyed using Pomona’s Pectin:

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Strawberry Vanilla Preserves

Strawberry Jam

Low Sugar Strawberry Vanilla Jam

Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam

Pear-Cranberry Conserve with Almonds and Crystallized Ginger

Pear Vanilla Jam with Honey

Sunrise Marmalade

Gingered Lemon-Fig Preserves

    You can never have enough jars! They are good for canning, storing, and we use them for drinking glasses.

  32. Char Dingley Posted June 17, 2015 at 11:45 am | Permalink

    I learned to can at my grandmothers knee at a very early age. My grandparents had a farm and nothing was ever wasted. I have great memories of those times, but I am ever grateful for learning how to preserve and can food. I love everything associated with it!

  33. Ellen Posted June 17, 2015 at 11:51 am | Permalink

    I love your Woozy jars for hot sauces. The jars in this giveaway would be great for salsa and what I would use them for. With over 40+ pepper plants, all super hots like the Carolina Reaper, I’m going to need a lot of jars this summer.
