Cooking Tips

Fruit Pectin Test


To test fruit for the presence of pectin sufficient to make jelly, try this;


Ø Extract 1 tablespoon of juice from your fruit and put it in a small glass container.

Ø Add 1 teaspoon of sugar.

Ø Add 1 ½ teaspoon of Epsom salt.

Stir until solids are dissolved, then let stand for 20 minutes.


If a solid mass forms or large mass clumps/ particles form then the fruit contains sufficient pectin for making jelly.


Here are some examples of fruits that contain goodly quantities of pectin.

Grapes

Raspberries

Plums

Quince

Apples

Loganberries

Gooseberries

Currants

Blackberries
