Help finding bulk sure-jell, ball gel, dutch gel or pectin

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I really don't care what brand, but I need either a mix or pure pectin. I refuse to pay $2 for a tiny packet when I KNOW that I can get a pound of it for $2. I know that I can check local amish markets, and even know of one that would probably carry it, however, I would have to drive a good two hours to get there, which would defeat the purpose. So, anyone know of a good online supplier for me? Thanks in advance. smile

I didn't know you could buy it in bulk.  I've just been around $2.50 for 2 boxes of Sure Jell at Wal-Mart.  I'd be interested in finding this out too. smile

I was watching a show tonight on Planet Green I think. It was the 100 mile challenge about these couples that for 100 days could only eat food that they got within a 100 mile radius. Anyways, the guy was making blueberry jam and had to make his own pectin. I didn't even know you could do that! Something about cooking sour apples( could be any kind of apple?). Perhaps you can google pectin recipe and see what you find.

Good luck!

Here are a few to start:
