Low-Sugar Jam Recipe: Sweet Cherry Jam

Sweet Cherry Jam, when made using Pomona’s Universal Pectin, becomes a great low-sugar jam recipe.


| March 2012


Pomona's Universal Pectin is different from other pectins because its jelling power is activated by calcium, not by sugar content. This allows this Sweet Cherry Jam Recipe to be cooked with low amounts of sugar or honey. Try this recipe with sweet or sour cherries.
