Yes, it is.

We are using the pectin recipe’ for Jam.

Other than the crushed fruit or fruit juice, the major difference between the two is how much pectin in the finished product. The Jam recipe calls for about 25% less pectin (actually has a larger yield on the same amount of pectin). The amount of sugars, Juice or Berries is about the same. Our stuff has a texture like Jam but without seeds. We DO have (fine) pulp in ours but no seeds; it is not clear. It is very spread-able.

Raspberries: 5 cups crushed berries, 7 cups sugar, 1 package pectin for Jam makes for 8-8oz jars (64 oz). For Jelly 4 cups juice, ¼ cup lemon juice, 5-1/2 cups sugar and 1 package pectin makes for 6-8oz jars (48 oz).
