I would like to find a safe alternative to jelly. I react to citric acid and avoid it at all costs. I don't know about fruit pectin because they always seem to be found in conjunction with one another. Has anyone found a brand of jelly they don't react to. I know I could make my own from scratch and I have Deb's book, but right now am looking for something I could buy from store or order. Haven't posted in a long while, guess that means I have been much better. Very glad to see the board is still active and helping people. It has helped me so much over the ten years I have needed it.

These three are on the corn-free list. I can't vouch for them personally because none of them are available near me. By the way, most of the commercial pectins are contaminated with corn derivatives of some kind so I avoid them, too.

Thanks Kristy. I did find something surprisingly at just the local supermarket here. It is made locally and is working out great. Just the fruit, sugar, and lemon juice, says its cooked in a kettle the old fashioned way!

I think the locally done products are a real gold mine. I found a small preserving type jar with what it labeled Organic Cranberry Sauce, it has org. cran., org. sugar, and water. It is really like a nice preserve, like strawberry. Nice Jam or jelly body with Pieces of cranberry. I just love it. I ordered a case of it in Oct. since they only have it available then. I had tried it the year before and did well with it. I high tailed it over to the store and bought a bunch of it and asked if I could order more. They told me only at Holiday time, so I gave them my name to put in their order book and I made sure to call them back last fall. I am lovin my jelly and peanut butter. Cranberries naturally become thick so that may be a fruit spread to look for. Mariann
