    I’d love to try this, but am not sure how. I have Bernardin liquid pectin, it comes in an 85 ml pouch (I live in Canada! but am American and can never figure out these mls…. but I think this is about 1/3 cup) and it says nothing about calcium water. Is the water already added, since it is liquid? The only thing it says is to use the whole thing, which would be hard considering your recipe only uses 1 1/2 tsp. Or did that mean powder? Any idea how much to use of the liquid? I realize this is an old post, I’m guessing no one is really going to comment on it! But your most recent chocolate chip cookie post is making me drool. thanks for any help you can give! I’m always looking for cute snacks for the kids and these are just genius.

    • Hi Helen, I apologize for the delay in answering this question here on the site. I’m hoping that you got my earlier e-mail that I sent to you.

      I used the Pomona Pectin in this recipe because kiwi fruit, like pineapple, has an enzyme in it that doesn’t allow it to really set up in Jell-O (just like pineapple). That’s why these fruit jellies don’t contain gelatin. So I did a bit of research into the liquid pectin (of which the Bernardin pectin is). According to the site foodsubs.com, you can use 2 tablespoons of liquid pectin for 4 teaspoons of powdered pectin. So what I would do is stir in 1 tablespoon of the Bernardin and see how the jellies are firming up. You’ll begin to see the jell (and they will continue to firm up when refrigerated). If you think they need to be firmer, go ahead and stir is more of the liquid pectin, 1 teaspoon at a time until you get a firmness that you like. (The calcium powder in the pectin that I used was needed to activate the pectin – your Bernardin is basically a self contained unit…1 part).

      I apologize for the trial and error like directions, but I currently don’t have any kiwi around to try this myself to give you more explicit directions.

      Worst case scenario…you end up with some nice kiwi jelly to spread on toast. So all is not lost. Let us know how this works for you.
