Shelf life of pectin?

posted by: lpinkmountain on 12.19.2009 at 03:06 pm in Harvest Forum

I was hauling out some Christmas stuff today and found some pectin in the back of a cupboard. It could be a couple years old. I was planning on making hot pepper jelly and I'm wondering if I should risk using it? I don't have luck with that darn stuff no matter what I use seems like. But I hate to waste . . .

A tried and true "recipe":

-One bag (94 lb) Type I portland cement
-200 lb masonry sand. If you buy bagged sand, look for ASTM C�"144. May or may not be listed.
-1.6 gal of LATICRETE 8510 Bonding Admix
-3.4 gal water

Though more expensive, if you want a predictably colored surface:

LATICRETE PermaColor Grout mixed with either LATICRETE
4237 Latex Additive or LATICRETE 8510 Bonding Admix can be applied as a finish plaster coating 1/8" thick over clean plaster or gunite. 4237 gives a fairly decent open time so you can keep a wet edge while you work. if you mix it to a fairly thick paint-like consistency you can apply it with a thick nap roller and follow that with a trowel to burn it in and smooth it out.

Definitely post back with photos, as well as the good, the bad, and the ugly.
