    RE: CERTO brown bottle

    Hello Stockton and welcome to the forum. Certo was a gelatin used in baking. A picture would help date it but I am going to guess circa. 1930's. Hope this helps, Kelley

    RE: CERTO brown bottle

    Certo is a fruit pectin used to make jelly and jam.
    It helps the jelly solidify into its jelly texture.

    I don't know about that, Kelley.[8D]

    I know how to make homemade jelly, though.

    Last year we made over 300 jars of jelly and jam.[:D]

    RE: CERTO brown bottle

    Most of the certo bottles I find are from 1940-1950's dumps.

    That should give you a timeline for when the bottle was made.

    RE: CERTO brown bottle

    Hey Woody, is Certo still made today? Or has something else replaced it in the homemade jelly and jam industry?

    It is still the top brand if you put any jellies and such up.
