LOOKING for: Persimmon Jam/Jelly Low Sugar

Posted by sandybeach (My Page) on

Hi I am looking for a low sugar persimmon jam or jelly. All the recipes I have are for 6+ cups of sugar for only 3 lbs of persimmons - I made one recipe and it was so sugary sweet it was awful!

I am using Fuyu persimmons by the way.

Thank you in advance!

RE: LOOKING for: Persimmon Jam/Jelly Low Sugar

Hi Sandy, I've made persimmon jam/jelly before. I just cooked it with as much sugar as I wanted - not much, because I also don't like a 'bit of fruit with my sugar' - but I made sure to finish off the jars quickly once I opened them since there wasn't enough sugar to preserve them long term. I also don't use pectin. It turned out more of a 'butter' but the fruit has enough pectin to hold up.

The Harvest forum on the Garden side of GW is where all the canners hang out, BTW (link above is broken).

Here is a link to a thread I just found on Harvest...good thing I checked...better rethink that canning!
