Probably a really stupid question, but is it possible to freeze this jam and leave out the pectin? Would freezing remove the need for pectin? How long will it keep for? Thanks in advance Mark - 13 Aug 2009
Delicious! I'd never tasted a gooseberry before, and wasn't sure what to expect. My jam turned out great, perfect sweet/tart combo, and such a beautiful color. My family loves it too! - 30 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Not having a food mill, I crushed my berries in a food processor on "chop". Nice texture, good jam consistency, delicious! - 30 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
