Creamsicle Jelly

Use only Ball brand liquid pectin, because I’ve discovered that the Certo brand barely seems to work anymore.

Eat this jelly on toast or stirred into yogurt (if you want to get the true creamsicle effect).

This is a recipe I got from another site as well as the photo.

Ingredients

4 c
freshly squeezed oj
4 c
sugar
2
vanilla beans
1 pkg
ball brand liquid pectin (1/2 the box)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine orange juice, sugar, vanilla bean scrapings and beans (to extract as much flavor from them as possible) in a large pot (this one is a foamer). Bring to a boil over high heat and cook with the intention of reducing the volume by approximately half.

Use a thermometer to track the temperature, so that you know when you’re getting to 220 degrees (the set point of jams and jellies). When it has reached 220 degrees and is able to maintain that temperature even after a good stir*, add the pectin. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes and remove from heat.

Remove the vanilla beans from the pot and pour jam into prepared jars. Wipe rims, apply lids and screw on bands. Process in a boiling water canner for ten minutes.

When time is up, remove jars from processing pot and place them on a towel-lined countertop and let them cool undisturbed for several hours. When they are cool enough to handle, check the seals. Store any unsealed jars in the fridge and place the rest in your pantry.

Eat this jelly on toast or stirred into yogurt (if you want to get the true creamsicle effect).
