  • ??? Re: expiration date on Sure Jell
    I was cleaning out my pantry and found 4 boxes of sure jell powdered pectin. The box says "best if used by 3-23-05. Do you think it would still be okay to use?

    thanks

    I just used a box that had expired in 2004 -- and my jam did great.

    I confess... if my jams haven't done well -- it's probably not the pectin, but me... I fudge measurements when I know I shouldn't. But.. on the bright side, my strawberry jam / syrup is a) great on pancakes, b) great stirred in plain yogurt or cottage cheese and c) super good on ice cream.

    The stuff tastes a zillion times better then the store bought stuff.

    Good luck... I say use it...

    I have used it before with a previous yr expiration date with no problem. I would go ahead and use it.

    DON'T CHANCE IT.

    I once used an expired box and ruined a whole batch of jelly. A friend had the same experience.

    At the price of Sure Jell, it's just not worth taking a chance. Better to waste--what, a dollar?--than to have to toss out a whole batch of fruit and sugar.

    Okay I will try it - I have some frozen berries (from last year!) and will dig out my mason jars one day this week.

    thanks
