Product Overview

As any experienced jam-maker will tell you, your jam’s texture is only as good as its set. To achieve, consistent results every time, use Certo’s Apple Liquid Pectin. Made from the skins of pressed apples or citrus fruits, Certo’s Apple Liquid Pectin is nature’s very own setting agent – in a convenient bottle!

Certo’s Apple Liquid Pectin is easily absorbed by your jam so you won’t need to boil it for as long. The result? A superior jam that retains maximum flavour and colour! With Certo’s Apple Liquid Pectin, you’ll limit the loss of nutrients through the cooking process. 

What could be better than baking your own Victoria Sponge? Baking your own Victoria Sponge and filling it with homemade jam, of course! For best results, use ½ a bottle of Certo’s Apple Liquid Pectin per 1.5kg of sugar. Certo’s has been trusted by generations of jam-makers since 1929 to achieve well-set jams and marmalades, every time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why didn’t my jam set after using Certo Apple Liquid Pectin? 

Making your own jam is a fine art and it can be frustrating when your jam doesn’t set. There are three main reasons why your jam may not be set properly. 

Firstly, check whether you have boiled your fruit long enough. Sometimes, you may find that you need to boil your fruit a little longer to remove any excess water. 

Your chosen fruit may naturally be lacking in pectin or your fruit may be riper than average, reducing its pectin content. Try adding lemon juice or boiling your fruit a little longer to achieve your desired set. 

Finally, patience! Don’t be tempted to poke your jam until it is completely cold and set – at least overnight.
