Low & No-Sugar Jams

Preserving with Pomona's pectin : the revolutionary low-sugar, high-flavor method for crafting and canning jams, jellies, conserves, and more

Late this winter while ordering books for the Library, I selected 'Preserving with Pomona's Pectin.' I had not heard of it, but apparently this pectin has been around for a couple decades.

Consequently, you can use very low or even no sugar in your jams and preserves.
