I have a Tefal Jam Maker and want to make some Rowan Jelly this year. I am wondering about how much pectin is in Rowan and whether my jelly will set! In the jam maker recipe book is gives a recipe for Blackberry jelly which includes juice of a lemon - would that work with Rowan?

Welcome Rose, I will ask one of our members to respond to your request - I have not indulged in jam making!

I'll try that again!

Can I suggest Rose, that you use apples for your pectin with rowan berries, cooking apples like Bramleys have pectin.

Quantity ratio - rowan 4 : 3 apples. (say, 4 pounds rowan to 3 pounds Bramleys), cooked up for 20 minutes or so - till soft.

Sugar - 1 pound for every 1 pint of juice after cooking up the fruit.

When I have Bramleys and use them for say, apple pie or crumble, I cook up the peel and cores, strain and freeze the liquid as reserve pectin when making other preserves with less pectin.

Hope this helps.

Good luck!

Welcome, Rose, as Val said, adding Pectin from Cooking Apples, helps.
