Preserving with Pomona’s Pectin

The Revolutionary Low-Sugar, High-Flavor Method for Crafting and Canning Jams, Jellies, Conserves, and More

If you’ve ever made jam or jelly at home, you know most recipes require more sugar than fruit—oftentimes 4 to 7 cups!—causing many people to look for other ways to preserve more naturally and with less sugar. Pomona’s Pectin is the answer to this canning conundrum. Unlike other popular pectins, which are activated by sugar, Pomona’s is a sugar- and preservative-free citrus pectin that does not require sugar to jell. As a result, jams and jellies can be made with less, little, or no sugar at all and also require much less cooking time than traditional recipes, allowing you to create jams that are not only healthier and quicker to make, but filled with more fresh flavor!

Pectin is sold on Amazon and on Pomona’s Website as well at some Natural Health Food Stores.

Blueberry Scones – this an old Maine Receipt that I modified

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar (I use 1/8 cup lightly packed)
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup of Butter (receipt says cold but I use it room temp)
  • 1 Cup Maine Blueberries (or other berries – frozen ok but coat with flour)
  • 3/4 Cup 1/2 and 1/2 Cream (I use lactose free whole milk)
  • 1 Egg
  • Natural Raw Sugar for the top

Cut Butter into Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder & Salt.

Beat Cream and Egg together then pour into dry ingredients.

Fold in Berries. Sprinkle tops with natural raw sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

Maine Wild Blueberries

Maine wild blueberries fresh or frozen have more anti-oxidant than cultivated blueberries, frozen, canned, or fresh.

I recommend  WYMAN’S Wild Blueberries because these are Maine Blueberries and known nationally as the best anti-oxidants.

They can be found in the frozen berries section at your supermarket.The bags are blue and the writing on the label makes it easy to spot.

These are the #1 anti-oxidant, anti-aging and anti-cancer berries.  Its much cheaper than the 3 quart of cultivated blueberries I bought last summer. I’m saving alot per quart when I buy the Maine Wild Blueberries frozen. The best part is that they are already frozen and cleaned for me, all I have to do is buy them when it is convenient for me.
