Dosage is based on the total weight of fruit and sugar combined.
The optimum Pectin dosage depends mainly on the specific application and how much natural Pectin is already in the fruit. The lower the Pectin levels the more Pectin is needed. If possible, when adding Pectin to your recipe, mix the Pectin in with a small of the sugar being used, then add it to your fruit/solution, the sugar will help disperse the Pectin. Add the Pectin gradually whilst constantly stirring. Once the Pectin is dissolved, bring the solution to a full rolling boil for 1 minute. Allow to cool at room temperature, then move to the refrigerator to set. Setting times can vary depending on the fruit used. If you require a firmer set you can re-boil the solution and add more Pectin. One thing to remember is if the acid content of the fruit or solution being used is low, an acid substitute such as lemon juice or citric acid can be added to make the fruit mixture more acidic, which will enhance the Pectin’s setting level.
