All contain the four essential ingredients needed to make a jellied fruit product–fruit, pectin, acid and sugar. They differ, however, depending upon fruit used, proportion of different ingredients, method of preparation and density of the fruit pulp. This publication deals with the basics of making jellies and jams, without adding pectin. Information on ingredients, equipment, and the canning process are provided in this publication.
