I was asked about this recipe many years ago by a stranger when shopping for canning jars. I looked it up (don't know where) and it has been a favorite since and asked for many times. I especially like to give it as gifts durng the holiday season HINT: I put my jars into a roasting pan full of water on the stove to heat up. After getting all my utensils and ingredients together I can whip up a batch is less than half an hour...practice makes perfect!

    Add sugar (all at once) ; return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. After mixture comes to a full rolling boil, then time for exactly 1 minute.
  • 3
    Remove from heat; skim off any foam (I have never had any). Pour into hot jars leaving 1/4-inch headspace.
  • 4
    Take a damp paper towel and wipe any jelly from rim of jar so caps won't stick. Adjust caps. Turn jars over on toweling and time 5 minutes. Turn jars upright and leave until cool and jelled.
