  • confused on the calorie count. the nutritional information says 56 but right below the picture it says 23 — so is the picture only counting on 1/2 a serving? seems a little misleading.

  • How much pectin should I use if I buy my pectin in bulk?

    Bev on

  • It is acidic, seems like you could safely can it in a water bath. Don’t know how the heat would affect the consistency.

    Janel on

  • You will need about 1.75 oz or 3½ tablespoons.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi, Suzanne! You can use more pectin to make it thicker.

    Blendtec on

  • How can I make it a little bit thicker?

    Suzanne on

  • It is mostly for sweetness. The honey is a great natural sweetener and is a great replacement for sugar in jams and preserves. However, you can try eliminating it altogether and/or trying another sweetener in its place.

    Blendtec on

  • Is the honey for consistency or sweetness? Hubby wants to eliminate sugar as much as possible. Yesterday I just blended the blueberries with nothing added.
