    Fruit pectin

    I ran out of bermocoll and picked up some pectin while I wait for my order to arrive. I noticed it has a botter taste to it. Will that go away after time or should I just wait to get my order in?

    Some people taste it, some don't. Fruit pectin sold for jelly making may contain citric acid (think "Sour Gummi Bears").

    If you taste it, you might want to wait.

    Xanthan gum will work and be flavorless.

    Bermacoll is cellulose glue. Wallpaper paste is cellulose glue. That craft glue they use in pre-school is cellulose glue. Don't have to wait for an order to arrive... it's all around you, in different forms. Or, just order up some wrapper from WLT. He tapes a wee baggie of glue onto each pound of wrapper. I stash those wee baggies for just in case. What'd you do with yours? Look round & see if you have one.

    Think he forgot last time I ordered. I got a package a while back from him and just got around to using that leaf. There wasn't any in there that's why I got the pectin

    Does he sell bags of it? I had to order some from LO because I didn't see it on WLT.

    I used to use pectin and because of that bitterness ,I switched to xanthan gum .much better adhesion, less needed to do the job .plus a better thinner consistency

    And I've used pectin without issue for years. YMMV

    Sure Jell is dextrose, citric acid & pectin.

    That's what I got. Seemed like the taste went away after it dried.
