I have some surplus cooking apples which I will be trying to make jam with. I can't find pectin in my local supermarket, but they do have "jam sugar", which contains pectin, but is twice the price of regular sugar.
From what I've read, apples are a natural source of pectin. So do I need to add extra pectin to my jam in order for it to set?
FYI: I don't have any crab apples, which people have suggested adding to jam to hep it set.
