  1. If you like your jam made with fruit juice concentrate but don’t want to use gelatin, you might consider trying Pomona’s Pectin — it jells fruit with low amounts of any sweetener. It is vegan and gluten-free. You should be able to find it in natural and health food stores, like Whole Foods, at Amazon.com, or on our website: pomonapectin.com.

    Good luck with your cooking and your blog — it’s great you are looking for lower calorie options.
