  1. I have yet to use Pomona pectin – after reading all these comments – I can’t wait to give it a try. Looking forward to these results.

  2. We love pomona’s too! I keep thinking that we might need an official t-shirt that proclaims, “We proudly use Pomona’s Universal Pectin!”

  3. I canned a batch of strawberry jam with Pomona’s and one without and all that sugar it requires. The difference side by side was incredible! The Pomona batch you could actually taste the wonderful strawberries, the other was all sugar, I’m hooked on Pomona’s!

  4. I have been using Pomona’s for years. Love using honey and making double/triple batches. “Jam Good” all the time. Used it this past summer in our fig and apple chutneys. Perfect.

  5. Pomona is a winner!! I just tell everyone that does canning that it is the best. Less sugar and you can do more batches at once!!!!!
    I just love Pomona!!!

  6. Dear Mary Lou Sumberg,
    Thank you once again for sending across very interesting information regarding ”Goddess POMONA”.
    Food Technologist.
    I really feel privileged to receive regular mail from Pomona Pectin.
    The information is so interesting.

  7. I am going to try Pomona’s for the first time with my abundance of prickly pears. I have your recipe and pectin. Can’t wait to see how it is without so much sugar; I may use some agave for one batch.

  8. I am a Pomona’s fanatic, telling everyone about it constantly. So far my favorite recipe is Balsamic Fig Jam. I may enter it into the local fair later in the summer. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You’ve changed our lives.

  9. I am completely in love with Pomona’s Pectin! I used it for the first time today and will never switch back to my old brand. Thank you for a fabulous product…can’t wait to try your other delicious recipes!

  10. I have been using Pomona pectin for years now and will never go back to the other kinds. It is so much faster to make a double or even triple batch and the flavor using honey or maple syrup you cannot match with sugar! I too have received excellent service with jam questions when I have had to make the call. Love this product and the people who represent it!

  11. I’ve been using Pomona’s Pectin for years and like it so much I tell everyone about it. My job to share great info with other canners.

  12. I have used Pomona pectin twice now with great results both times. I like the way my questions were answered so promptly. I even got an answer to a jamming problem on a Sunday!! Talk about great customer service.
