Question Sugar Free Jelly?

I was wondering... I buy Polner All Fruit Jelly, it is pretty expensive. I was curious, anyone know how to make it from scratch?

If you buy the packages of Sugar-Free pectin (Sure-Jell is what I use), there will be an insert inside the package stating what is needed to make the sugar-free jellies. I use fruit juice just because it is cheaper than the actual fruit. The sugar-free pectins do make a "sloppier" jelly; I don't know what the consistency would be if you used fruit instead of juice...probably would be thicker though. And, what's more, you really can't taste the difference between that and sugar-laded jellies...maybe a bit more fruitier (is that a word?).

Also, it doesn't take a lot of time to make the jelly (using the prepared juice, of course), and with no added sugar expense, it is a LOT cheaper than buying "diet" jelly.

Hope this is of use to you...Good luck!

jelly

So is it true that if you are making no sugar jelly that you can not get it thick. I have one child that cannot have sugar and buying jams and jellies are getting expensive. Thanks for your advice.

Charlene,

Thanks for the thumbs up on the Sugar-Free pectin. I've never used it, but have used the lower sugar ones. Now my doc tells me "no sugar" and I do ocassionally like jam or jelly, this sounds great. I make many cases of zucchini jelly (don't laugh) to give away and several of the folks I give to do not need the sugar either. I will surely try this out next summer when I'm over run with zucchinis.

sugar free jam

i have made sugar free strawberry jam from the suregel packet and it taste great-it is a little runnier but then so are the ones you buy in the store, it also is a duller color but if you add a drop of red food color, you really can't tell that much difference.
