May Jam Cooked In A Hametz Pot Be Eaten On Pesah?

Even if a hametz ingredient was purposely added to food, it is still nullified in a mixture of 60 parts non hametz to one part hametz. However if the hametz is the base ingredient it is not nullified regardless how large a ratio there is. If a hametz spatula was accidentally used while cooking food before Pesah, the food may still be eaten on Pesah. If one made jam before Pesah in a clean hametz pot the jam may be eaten by Sephardim during Pesah. Ashkenazim however may not eat it on Pesah. On Pesah one does not have to make sure to obtain milk only from cows owned by a non Jew that were not fed hametz. Even if the cows owned by a non Jew ate hametz one may still drink their milk on Pesah.
