I liked this very much, but i had a few issues with it. First, someone said this was a good recipe for beginners; yes and no.
I followed the recipe to the letter. After about 30 hours of cooling, I opened one up and it tasted a bit gritty... yes, I should have let the mixture boil longer. So, I opened the other two pints, placed them into a large pan and brought it back up to boiling. I then added another tablespoon of pectin while it was just starting to boil. After letting it bubble for five more minutes, I took the jelly off the burner and returned the mixture to sterilized jars. Remember to use new lids.
The redo came out much better. In the future, I'll slightly dilute the grape concentrate the next time (two containers of water rather than three), as the current jelly tastes more like sugary grape than grape jelly. This is an easy fix, however.
