      The problem is that once you mess it up, you end up with suryp or having
      to reprocess the jam/jelly which requires new lids which MUST be imported,
      no one sells them in Israel.

      There is no sure fire way to tell how much is enough for low pectin
      fruit. Commercial pectin is relatively cheap (especialy in Israel
      where fruit is expensive) and it's safe. There are no strange additives,
      preservatives etc.

      Unless you really know what you are doing, or have lots of fruit and
      consumables to spare, ignore this.
