    Can I make this peach marmalade recipe without Pectin? A lot of peach jam recipes say that Peaches have enough of their own Pectin??

    was very good, but there are no instructionsas to when to add sugar. I brought the mixture to a boil then added the sugar and proceeded to bring to a full boil for 1 min., as in regular jam making. I would surely make again

    Turned out great. In Canada, the powdered package of pectin was 57g, so a bit more than the recipe called for, but still fine. Tastes like my grandmother's old recipe.

    When I tasted this warm, I thought it might be a bit bitter, but after cooling - it is DELISH!
