  • Ball Regular Jam Setting Mix with Pectin 133g

    Capture the freshness and flavour of hand-picked fruit in your jams and jellies with Ball’s pectin setting mix, which is carefully blended to include just the right amount of pectin.

    What is Pectin?

    Pectin is a natural ingredient derived from the fibre found in the skin of certain fruits. Apples, for example, are naturally high in pectin, which is why they are very firm. Pectin is also found in the rinds, seeds and membranes of citrus fruits.

    Consistent, Tastier Results

    In preserves, pectin works as a thickening agent, helping your jams thicken up quicker and reducing the boiling time required to offer more consistent results and fruitier tasting jams and jellies. This mix contains just the right amount for perfect results every time.

    Ideal for batch-making preserves using home-grown or shop-bought fruit, this mix makes up to 22 x 240ml jars of jam. It includes instructions for no sugar, low sugar, no-calorie sugar substitutes and honey to make 1-10 jars of jam per batch, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It’s also gluten free.

    "great setting agent"

    i don't understand other reviews on the cost its a good sized tub for the price and you do not need a lot to make the jam set the product is designed to go with the Ball Jam Maker which i bought in store and the time to make Jam is much faster than in my original Lakeland Jam Maker so no complaints form me i will be buying again.

    "Very good"

    It works a treat in my Ball jam maker. Just wish it was a bigger jar as I make a lot if jam.

    "Very expensive"

    I've been making jam for years so, while not an expert, I like to think I know what I am doing. As I usually make jam in batches of over 1kg (to be perfectly honest, I think most people do!) , this stuff works out to be very expensive as you need a tablespoon for around 350g which means that you would use about £4 worth each time as it's only a small, small tub. As one of the points of making homemade jam is to be economical, this does seem a bit of a contradiction, therefore. I also have to say that I was not aware of any enhanced fruit flavour when using this, so won't be buying it again.

    A note from the team

    Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry you've been disappointed with this product and you feel it's not as economical as you were expecting. We'll be in touch shortly to put things right for you. It's recommended to use 22.5 grms of the pectin and add this to your combined 330mls of fruit and 15mls of lemon juice. Once finished with 400grms of sugar this would be suitable to fill two 240ml jars
