How to Make Grape Jelly

Step-by-Step

    On high heat, bring to a full rolling boil, and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
    Stir in sugar all at once, and bring back to a full rolling boil, again boil hard for 1 minute stirring constantly. (I add a tsp of butter at this time to help keep the foam down)
  5. Remove from heat, skim off foam and pour into hot jars, add put on hot lids.
