  • I am *SO* jealous! I switched to Pomona’s this summer and can’t think about going back! I wish I lived much closer…..

  • That sounds like a blast! I wish I were in the area, but I admit – that would be a pretty high bar for potluck. I’d be pretty nervous about what to bring! But let’s face it: that kind of preserving knowledge in one room would probably be worth the ego damage of taking most of my contributed dish back home with me, LOL.

  • I just picked up Allison’s book this past week and have been marking the recipes I’ll be making in the coming weeks. I switched to Pomona’s in July and so glad that I did. Would love to join you fine folk if I lived in the area – wishing you a great potluck!

  • Where is the magic wand when you need one? I am totally new to Pomona but an old timer with preserving. I will be taking Pomona for a test drive later this year when temps have cooled off and I can finally make my jams. My fruits are partying and jammin’ (pardon the pun) in the freezer at the moment. I have Preserving with Pomona (read it through 3X already) and while I love the recipes, I would also like to try other recipes that use the obscene amounts of sugar.

    I have searched the web for pectin conversion/substitution and found one for Pomona. Word hasn’t gotten out maybe? I know I have just this year discovered Pomona. Long story short, maybe a discussion can be started that addresses a basic Pomona formula i.e., ?cups/# of fruit, ?tsp calcium water, ?tsp pectin? If required, maybe fruit can be broken down into types?

    Being a diabetic, I am absolutely thrilled to discover Pomona’s ‘sweeten to taste’ concept. I can’t wait to try it. When I can use it with total confidence on any recipe I want to try, I know I would have arrived home!

    Thank you Pomona/Allison and Thank YOU Marisa for your continuing inspiration!!!!

  • What is Pomona? From reading the comments, I am hoping it is something to use in lieu of the X amounts of sugar.

    I am somewhat new to canning. I got a wild hair at the tail end of growing season here in the monsoon of Colorado and decided I was giving canned this and that for Xmas. I was lucky enough to get a case of peaches and then the monsoon came for a week long visit. Am still looking for open farmer’s markets to grab what I can cut up and freeze until I have an open weekend to do some canning.
