    Sorry Crash, but I don't have much for a label. I bought it from a local Amish store that sells bulk goods. I'll have to do some more checking to try to find out how much I need.

    This recipe sounds great and I'm going to try it tomorrow. I'm new to jellies/jams and have a stupid question. I bought my pectin in bulk and was wondering what the equivalent was to one packet?
