Rated 1 out of 5 by from Last time I will Buy the Liquid Pectin from Ball I have always used Certo Liquid Pectin in my freezer jams until recently. My store did not carry Certo but had Ball Liquid Pectin. Thinking there could not be much difference, but there was. I have strawberry syrup, not jam.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from fruit floating to top and very loose set I have been making freezer no-cook strawberry jam for 40+ years. Both, last year and this year my strawberries floated to the top and the set was very loose jelly like. I pride myself on making good jams that I give as gifts. Not at all proud to give these jars. There has to be a problem with the Certo liquid itself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not set in the 24 hours noted in the recipe Made per the directions and like others mine did not set. Saw the note that it may take up to 2 weeks for the liquid pectin to set?? How can you leave it in the fridge until it sets then if it's not supposed to be in there more than 24 hours? May need to revise the instructions to clarify......I moved some to the freezer anyway and will see what happens, the rest we will just be sure to use quickly so as not to waste our investment.....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't set I used the liquid pectin for the first time. Used a combo of fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Very disappointed as it did not set.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing. I've made freezer jam many times and have never had a problem. I chose this recipe as my store was out of the freezer jam pectin, and I purchased liquid instead. It separated with the fruit on top and pectin on the bottom, and never did set up. This was so disappointing, as I use my own strawberries, picked fresh just for this. Maybe we can spoon it on ice cream instead?
