- 1 1/2 c
- 100% grape juice (purple, store bought is fine)
- 1 1/2 c
- 100% cherry juice (store bought is fine)
- 2 c
- 100% apple juice (again, go with store bought)
- 6 1/2 c
- sugar, pre measured into a container
- 1 box
- powdered pectin
- 1 tsp
- butter or margarine
1Measure out your sugar into a container that is easily pourable. You will want to pour it quickly. Set it beside your stove, to have handy. Have a timer handy as well.
2Get your jars and lids ready. Have your jars sterilized and your lids heating, for a better seal.
3Make sure your pot is large enough for the boiling process so it doesn't boil over. Measure the juice into a pot on the stove, whisk in your powdered pectin until it is thoroughly dissolved. Add your margarine.
4Turn stove onto a high heat and bring to a boil. When at a full boil, add the sugar and stir in well till dissolved. Keep stirring until at a full rolling boil. Let it continue to boil for 1 minute while stirring. Set the timer for that 1 minute or watch the clock, you can go over a hair, not under.
5Remove from heat and skim the foam off. Pour immediately into prepared jars, put lids and rings on and set on a towel, in a dry area with little air flow. Some people set their jars upside down to make it seal, I personally do not. They all ping, so I know I have a good seal.
