I'll be honest, I'm not too sure either what constitutes pectin - maybe it is apple-based; but gelatine is certainly animal-based.

Just had a quick search, and yes, pectin should come from plant-based constituents, and looking at Wiki:

"It is produced commercially as a white to light brown powder, mainly extracted from citrus fruits, and is used in food as a gelling agent, particularly in jams and jellies."

So, I apologise for giving you a fright !! laugh  big_hug

 'A hug,' said Pooh 'is always the right size!'

Cheers Val, I've cracked in this morning with making lemon curd, mainly as I've got all the yolks left over from the macarons, and more today, plus I am then boiling up the lemon leftovers- shells and pips from the curd with the hope if I add that to the marmalade and reboil, it should set.- fingers crossed.
