Have you ever made grape jelly?
Or any jelly for that matter?
Me neither, but I had some red grapes from the store that I didn't want to throw away.
So, I pulled out my pectin ( that I scored on sale a while back for .25 a pack!) and followed the easy jelly directions on the back!
Now, I also searched online, and it looked like I follow them but because I didn't have a ton of grapes I decided to go the easy peasy pectin route.
Here's what the back on my pectin box said to do:
Stir 1 1/2 c sugar with pectin.
Add 4 cups crushed fruit
Stir 3 minutes.
Ladle jam into jars, let stand 30 minutes.
Enjoy in Freezer 1 year or Refrigerate up to 3 weeks.
The last step I ended up water-bathing my jar so I could store on a shelf.
So far so good, but I haven't opened yet!
I've had great luck canning this summer, even though my garden wasn't it's best!
I have a full shelf of canned goods from the garden!
Can't imagine what it would be like if I had a better garden year!
Whats your favorite jelly?
We are becoming quite the jelly aficionados as I feel that's all I have made this summer!
