Dutch-Jell Lite, a specially formulated, natural fruit pectin blend, is brought to you by Kauffman Orchards. Dutch-Jell Lite reacts with the sugars and the fruit's own acid to cause a jelling effect in homemade jellies and jams. This specially formulated "lite" natural fruit pectin blend does not require regular sugar to produce a jelling effect in homemade jams and jellies. It is an inexpensive alternative to name-brand pectin and is perfect for no-sugar-added or reduced-sugar jam and jelly recipes. Dutch-Jell Lite has a shelf life of over a year, and, unlike some name-brand pectin's, it has no preservatives added.
Wet Spring Instructions: For Jams and Jellies: When making jam with high-moisture berries, the extra water in the berries dilutes the pectin, sugar, and citric acid. The end result is runny jam; the issue to resolve is not the pectin blend, but rather the extra moisture in the fruit itself. For these cases, one suggestion is to increase the amount of Dutch-Jell Lite in the recipe by up to double – for example, instead of 1/3 heaping cup, use 2/3 heaping cup.

Ingredients: Dextrose, Pectin, Citric Acid (acidifier).

    Made reduced sugar blueberry & reduced sugar peach with this pectin. Both set up beautifully & taste was great! No lumps when cooking. Wonderful product.
