Good to know!

For best results, we recommend to use 100% Apple Juice either from concentrate or not from concentrate. Room temperature juice works best.

Most juice varieties on the market have Vitamin C added which is acceptable for making jelly.

We do not recommend using a juice variety with calcium added as it prevents a good set. Be sure to look at your label for any ingredient that includes calcium in the name.
