Today, we talk about what it takes to get your jams and jellies to set.
- Pectin – what it is.
- The concept of “a set” and what it means.
- Best method of testing for set.
- Pectin’s role – to pectin, or not to pectin.
- Making your own pectin.
Made a lot of jam since we last got together –
- Strawberry vanilla
- Strawberry japaleno
- Chery almond
- Blueberry, and,
- A raspberry / blueberry combo.
Also made my incredible blueberry muffins. It’s a special treat that I love to make when the berries are freshest. Of course I have a little of John’s touch, a little sum-sum, to make them really great.
Note: You’re not hearing things. In the audio, I called this episode #43 by mistake. It really is supposed to be episode #42. By the time I discovered the mistake, it was too late as the show had posted. -john
