Sugar Sugar inhibits the growth of bacteria, keeping your jam fresh, fruity, and safe to eat. Jam recipes are formulated to call for a certain ratio of pectin to sugar, and they will not jell properly if you don't use the correct amount of sugar. If you'd like to make less-sweet jam, you'll need to buy a special kind of pectin that's formulated to work with less sugar.
I made a batch of this jellly and I have to say I am verry disapointed it did not set. I have made lots of jams.
This was my venture into jelly making and I just want to thank you for making it really enjoyable with this recipe! The jars are cooling off as I type. I tasted the jelly before putting in the jars and it tasted fantastic! I read one of the reviews where it said that it tastes like sunshine in a jar and I'll definately second that...thanks for a super great recipe, Rachel...I'll be making more of this!!
Great flavor and color, easy to make, next time I will add just a touch more pectin since mine didn't set up quite to the consistency that I like. Otherwise it was amazing and I love it on just about anything bread-like in the morning!!!
Absolutely delicious and tangy. Our favorite "new" jam this year. Two batches turned out great, one batch (a week later) still hasn't jelled, but we'll use it on ice cream or pancakes if it doesn't set. We love the sweet, tanginess of this recipe. Thanks for sharing it.
I modified this. I can not drink orange juice because of high acidity. So I used fresh squeezed oj from the tree in my back yard. I dont use liguid pectin I only use sure jell. On concentrate you use 5 & 1/4 cups sugar on this recipe I only used 5 and turned out great...Oh and to get rid of scum or the nasty fuzz stuff on top my mother in law said if you use 1/2 teaspoon of real butter when you start cooking, the butter eliminates the scum so you dont have to skim it before putting it in jars
Super easy jelly!! and boy is it yummy!!
Mmm... Sunshine in a jar!
