Resources for Today

  • do I… Freeze? Make Jam and Jelly?)


Jams and jellies l.jpg
Jams and Jellies

  • Fruit – fresh, canned, frozen or dried (adds flavor!)

  • Pectin – natural carbohydrate that causes fruit to gel

  • Acid – needed for gel formation

  • Sugar – preserves jellied fruit, helps form a gel & adds flavor

Fruit l.jpg

  • Use just-ripe fruit for best flavor and quality

  • Mix ripe and unripe fruit if you don’t use added pectin

  • Overly ripe fruit will taste great, but may fail to set

Pectin l.jpg

  • Use natural pectin in apples, plums and grapes

  • Add pectin to other fruits to ensure a good gel

  • Add pectin to fully ripe fruit

  • Liquid and powered pectin are not interchangeable

More about gels l.jpg
More about Gels

  • Dry & powdered pectins for different recipes

  • Low-methoxyl pectins for low- or no products

  • Powdered gelatin for refrigerator products

Acid and sugar l.jpg
Acid and Sugar

  • Added acid for success

  • Measure sugar carefully

  • Use honey or corn syrup sparingly

  • Sugar substitutes can be used only in special recipes (refrigerator jelly– OR

Boiling water canning l.jpg
Boiling Water Canning…..

A MUST for jams and jellies

  • Helps form a seal

  • Destroys yeast and mold

  • Is required for

    a shelf-stable


Modifications l.jpg

  • No sugar gelatin recipes – keep these refrigerated (don’t freeze or boil)

  • Freezer jams may not require processing

  • Follow package directions carefully

When things just don t work l.jpg
When things just don’t work…..

  • Mold – imperfect seal

  • Failure to set – too large a batch, incorrect proportions of ingredients

  • Fading – storage place too warm or too lights; stored too long

  • Fruit floats – Stir fruit mixture for 5 min before ladeling into hot jars

How long does it keep l.jpg
How Long Does It Keep?

  • Jams and jellies keep for 1 year if stored in a cool, dark location (but just try to keep them this long!)
