5 1/4 cups
1 (2 ounce) package
powdered fruit pectin
This recipe is so easy to make, great for a beginner. Although at the time of my making it, the recipe did not state when to add the water. I just disolved the pectin in it before adding it to the grape juice. I also did the plate in the freezer trick to ensure it was ready. Place a plate in the freezer during cooking, when sugar is disolved take the plate out and drop a half teaspoon of the jelly onto the plate. Wait one minute and push it with your fingernail. If it wrinkles, it's ready to jar! Great recipe!
Great with grape juice; but when using fresh grapes the large purple ones are perfect; must be boiled and strained and then the sugar and surejel adjusted to quantity of juice yielded; then this recipe works great for fresh also! Thumbs up.
I've been using this recipe since I took Home Ec in high school (sometime during the last century!)and it's a winner. I even turned my grandmother on to it.
This is the recipe off the sure jell package. The only difference is when the mixture comes to a rolling boil, immediately add the sugar and then bring back to rolling boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Then take of heat and ladel. Also for those questioning when to add the water, you don't add any water. Just add the powdered pectin to the grape juice.
Your kids will love you for this and spoil them for store bought jelly! I used liquid pectin and Trader Joe's organic grape juice with Concord grapes. Recipe on the Certo website. I think that if you are a beginner canner, this site is your best bet to do exactly what you do to be safe and make a great product. I have read that liquid pectin produces a fresher fruit taste. In any case, homemade grape jelly is the best!!!
Very good and very tasty. Made recipe as is and was able to get 7 jelly jars. Processed for 10 minutes in water bath.
this was very simple and easy to make. i made it for christmas gifts,i got the tall wine glasses instead of putting the jelly in the jars,i put pretty wine charms on them and gave them to my family for christmas,they thought it was real.my family has since asked if i was going to make it again.
Turned out good. Very easy and tasty. Watch out welches
