"A classic red currant jelly made from fresh currants. This came from my one of my mother's handwritten recipe cards. I do not know its origin, but know it probably dates back to the early 1940's."

  1. Place the currants into a large pot, and crush with a potato masher or berry crusher if you have one. Pour in 1 cup of water, and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the fruit through a jelly cloth or cheese cloth, and measure out 5 cups of the juice.
  2. Pour the juice into a large saucepan, and stir in the sugar. Bring to a rapid boil over high heat, and stir in the liquid pectin immediately. Return to a full rolling boil, and allow to boil for 30 seconds.
  3. Remove from heat and skim off foam from the top. Ladle or pour into sterile 1/2 pint jars, filling to within 1/2 inch of the top. Wipe the rims with a clean damp cloth. Cover with new sterile lids and rings. Process covered in a bath of simmering water for 10 minutes or the time recommended by your local extension for your area.

This is the exact recipe that is included in the Certo brand liquid fruit pectin box. I actually used 5 cups of sugar instead of 7 and it's still tasty!

Very easy and straightforward. I increased the juice to 6 cups (that is what I had)and used 7.5 cups sugar, and 6 oz. of liquid pectin and it turned out wonderful. Thanks for the easy recipe, ...

I was hard pressed to get that last cup of liquid from 4 pounds. Next time I would add more water. The 7 cups of sugar seemed like a lot to me but I followed the recipie this first time around...
