After doing research on the low sugar options I have come across a product Pomona's Universal Pectin specifically made for low sugar canning. This type pectin makes thick jam and jelly with rich, full flavor undiluted by large amounts of added sugar. Ordinary fruit pectins require your jam or jelly to be 55-85% sugar to set firmly.
This product is available at the Co-Op.... Price
