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
