Is it possible to substitute powdered pectin for liquid pectin? Can you interchange them if you add them at different points in the recipe?
If so what is the correct conversion?

1 Tbsp liquid pectin = 2 tsp powdered pectin.
I found this at homesteadingtoday.com:
How To Convert Powdered Pectin To Liquid Pectin
When you cannot find liquid pectin it is useful to know how to turn the powdered form into liquid. Mix 1 package powdered pectin in 1/2 cup water and boil for 1 minute. Pour into a measuring cup and add enough water to make 1 cup. Use as you would liquid pectin.

Thank you so much. Question, I have a tub of powdered pectin. What would the measurement of 1 package usually be?
Or do I use 2tsp or whatever my conversion would be and use the same amount of water?
Sorry for the confusion.

Certo pectin typically comes in a 6 fluid ounce pouch. 1 oz = 2 Tbsp = 4 tsp powdered.

Sometimes there are minor differences in the set. I find that my ideal set comes from no sugar powdered pectin. Food in Jars is a great resource: http://www.foodinjars.com...

I think though that it depends a lot of what kind of powdered pectin you are talking about. Pomona, which has a two-ingredient system, with a different way of using it, would be handled differently. Also, there's a variety of different kinds of powdered pectin (some permitting use of less sugar, etc.). What brand is the powder that you have there? ;o)

AntoniaJames, I would love to tell you the brand, but I bought it in bulk packaging from a baking supply house and it is only labeled PECTIN. Oh well.

I will look at the food in jars site. Thank you Always040

And Hardlikearmour, thank you again for the helpful measurements!

My recipe calls for 2 - 3oz Pouches of liquid pectin. I have Ball Instant Pectin - Hardlikarmour doesn't state how many ozs of dry pectin is above. Your help is gratly appreciated! Thank you!
