Inexpensive pectin source? (besides from apples)
I don't have an apple tree, and am looking for an inexpensive pectin/pectin substitute, bulk is great.
Also would like to be canning a lot of sugarfree jam for my elderly friends at church, so a low/no sugar pectin/pectin substitute would be so helpful. I hate to give a couple a jar of jam that only one can use.
I've only been able to scrounge pint jars this year so I need to be frugal with the pectin. I get a lot of berries and peaches for free but don't usually get much notice (usually the doorbell) so I'm always scrambling to find the time to put up the jam...
Sorry for the ramble - if you know of a good source/product please let me know. I put up about 100 pints of jam last year, and would like to do more if pectin costs allow.
