You all know how I try to think ahead and keep what I need on hand. Because the world is still a crazy place, if you’re a canner and if you’re hoping to make jams and jellies this year, please pectin and jars when you see them and don’t wait til you need them.
Think ahead and anything you can’t do without . . get it when you see it. Pectin does have an expiration date on it and I have used it past the expiration date and never had a problem but it isn’t something I keep for years and years. I do try to use it by the expiration date because it isn’t like throwing out a jar of green beans . . you will have wasted a lot of fruit and sugar if the pectin fails.
I have no idea if jars are easy or hard to find right now but Walmart does have several varieties of pectin showing online.
