Do I need to do a jell test before jarring cooked jam or jelly made with Pomona’s Pectin?

You don’t need to do a jell test with Pomona’s. If you have followed a Pomona’s recipe and the directions, your jam should jell when it is completely cool – 12 to 24 hours after removing it from the water bath.

If you’d like to do a jell test, this is what we recommend: Put a Tablespoon of the hot mixture on a little saucer. Put the saucer in the freezer to thoroughly cool the mixture. Remove the saucer from the freezer when the mixture is thoroughly cool and check the jell. It is a good idea to turn off the heat and put a lid on your pot while doing the jell test.
