Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • PREPARE CONTAINERS: Rinse clean plastic containers and lids with boiling water; dry thoroughly.
  • PREPARE PECTIN MIXTURE: Gradually add pectin to water in small (1-qt.) saucepan, stirring constantly. Bring to boil on medium heat; boil 2 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  • PREPARE TRIAL BATCH: Measure jam or jelly into small bowl. Add sugar; stir 3 min. or until sugar is completely dissolved. Add 1 Tbsp. of the pectin mixture; stir an additional 3 min. Immediately pour into one of the prepared containers. Cover and let stand up to 24 hours before checking to see if set. Meanwhile, store remaining pectin mixture in refrigerator.
  • PREPARE REMAINDER OF BATCH: If Trial Batch sets satisfactorily, prepare remaining jam or jelly, remaking no more than 8 cups of jam or jelly at one time and using same directions as for Trial Batch with the above-listed measures of sugar and pectin mixture for each 1 cup of jam or jelly. Pour into prepared containers. Discard any leftover pectin mixture.

Special Equipment Needed

How to Measure Larger Amounts of Ingredients

For convenience in measuring larger amounts of sugar and pectin mixture: 3 tsp. = 1 Tbsp., 8 Tbsp. = 1/2 cup, and 16 Tbsp. = 1 cup.


If your jam or jelly still doesn’t set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 failed jam batches after years of successful use I have used Low Sugar Sure Jell for years to make strawberry freezer jam and never had a problem. This year I bought two packages from my grocer at two different times, made 2 batches of jam, and most did not set. I am planning to use the unset jars for syrup, though that was not my intention and now I will not have enough jam to last the year. I am hoping it's safe after sitting out at room temp for 24 hours. Unless Kraft figures out why this is happening to so many people after never having had a problem before, I am going to have to figure out how to make jam successfully without Sure Jell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My RASPBERRY JAM will not set up. I made 3 batches, the week of July 3 and they set out for 2 days .Did not set up, and GRAINY SUGAR taste. I had a lot of time and money in making the jam, and feel I should be compensated. There was way too much sugar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strawberry freezer jam did not set. Has separation in 1/2 pt. jars It tasted delicious but did not set. I suppose I could use it for strawberry syrup, but that is not what my intentions were. Am so disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strawberry freezer jam won't set ! My strawberry freezer jam won't set-up ! Same thing happened last year. No, I don't want to use it for syrup. I've never had trouble with it before & I'm very disgusted and probably won't ever make it again. No, I don't want it for syrup !
