What Is Pectin?

7 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

my breadmaker also makes jam. Now the recipe calls for pectin. What is pectin? Is this a stabilizer? Could I substitute this with gelatine :huh: ?

Pectin is a complex carbohydrate found in many fruits and some vegetables. Sources include apples, plums, peaches and similar fruits. It is not a source of gluten. You should be able to obtain it at a health/specialty food store.

I knew that pectin is in apples, but I didn't know about the other fruits. So it's a stabilizer. Do you know, if I could substitute this with gelatine? Cause gelatine makes jam stiff, too. I'm just curious, if you can do so :) . If not, I will get the pectin in our health food store.

Stef - I don't think gelatin will work. I have never heard of making jam with gelatin. What bread maker do you have? Mine makes jam also but I lost the recipe. Could you post the recipe for yours?

Thanks!

Sure, it's a recipe for peach jam:

1 cup sugar

1 tbsp. low-sugar fruit pectin

2 cups thawed frozen sliced peaches

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

2 tsp. lemon juice

I found the fruit pectin. Our health food store didn't have it. I found it in the same shelf with the canning supply in giant.

Does anybody have a recipe for strawberry jam? Or do I just exchange the peaches and the strawberries? That's weird though, cause I think nutmeg might taste a little strange in a strawberry jam, wouldn't it???

That sounds delicious! I'm going to have to try that - we have a ton of peaches in my neck of the woods around July/August. (No, not in Georgia!) :P

I wonder if just a regular strawberry jam recipe would work? This sounds very similar to the recipes for jam not made in the bread machine - might be worth trying. I have some in my basic cookbooks at home, also there were recipes in the pectin box I got. Maybe I'll just experiment.

Thanks, Stef!

That's a great idea. I didn't open my pectin box yet. There also might be some recipes... :lol:
