Grape Jelly

This year our grapes were plentiful.  So that means grape jelly!!

I figured I'd share my grape jelly recipe. 

4 cups grape juice
1/2 cup water
7 cups sugar
1 pouch liquid certo

Put juice, water and sugar in a pot. Make sure it's a very large pot.
Bring to a hard boil.  Boil for 1 minute. Add Certo and boil hard for another minute.
Don't panic, it's going to rise to top of the top, but that's why you have a large pot.

Pour into hot sterile jars

Make sure you scrap off the foam on the top and discard.

Wipe the jar with a wet to clean the rim.

Add the hot sterile caps

Then screw on caps just fingertip tight.

And here's your jelly.  It makes 9- 250ml jars.

Then you start praying that the lids pop. Because if it doesn't then you don't have a seal. And unfortunately you'll have to eat it all right away....darn.

Have a Blessed Evening

p.s. Thanks to my helper for taking the pictures.
