Tips for Successful Jams & Jellies

  • Use firm ripe fruit for the best flavor and results.

  • Buy new jar lids for tight-fitting seals.

  • Always thoroughly wash and sanitize jars before use.

  • Use only the SURE-JELL Pectin product specified in recipe to ensure a proper set.

  • Pectin products are not interchangeable.

  • Do not reduce the sugar in recipe since that will result in set failures.

  • We recommend using Domino or C&H Pure Cane Sugar.
