Can I add more sweetener to my freezer jam than the recipe calls for?

Yes, it is okay to add extra sweetener beyond our range when making freezer jam with Pomona’s Pectin. The pectin is dissolved in the boiling hot water, so extra sweetener in the fruit mixture will not prevent the pectin from dissolving.

Adding extra liquid sweetener, however, can soften the jell, so consider adding a little extra pectin in Step 4 of the freezer jam directions if you know you are going to add extra liquid sweetener.
