    for those who remember bottled Certo. Is the current package of two
    pouches equal to the old bottle. I am thinking that it is but just
    want a confirmation.

    Kindly give us a hint as to what is Certo? and why we need to be
    interested about it? Thanks. Is it kin to Vegemite by any chance? If so
    yes..its unhealthy.

    Certo is pectin, but i'm not familiar with
    bottled pectin of any kind.

    the ancient recipe i had for freezer jam
    called for one 6floz pouch of liquid pectin,
    but these days the pouches are 3floz (or they
    were when i purchased them this past early
    summer). as to what games they might be
    playing with amounts in recent times with
    respect to jars i'm at a loss.

    after googling i've come up with enough
    definitive answers that 6floz it was. so
    two 3floz pouches will do.

    Hmmm. I thought it was but I'm looking at an intact bottle and the
    label says 8 fl oz net.

    Glass is more expensive for packaging, heavier to ship, and more likely
    to break, bird. The Certo bottles had a half-bottle mark embossed in
    the glass for those recipes that only required half a bottle (equivalent
    to one of today's foil packets).

    And where I am, I have never seen Certo powder! I think our Canadian
    friends see it.
