  7. NOTE on Dr. Oetker's Super Gelling Sugar 3:1 . Dr. Oetker is a well known brand in Germany. There are several gelling sugars available. The 3:1 super gelling sugar already contains pectin and you only need 1/3 of sugar. If you can't get it, you could also use Dr. Oetker's 2:1 super gelling sugar (then use 450 g sugar). Follow the instructions on the package.
