How to Make Grape Jelly

Step-by-Step

  1. First make the grape juice using fresh washed grapes
    To 3 1/2 pounds of clean grapes add 1 cup water
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer covered for 10 minutes. The cooking time is only after it comes to a boil.
  3. Strain and squeeze out all the juice with a jelly cloth or cheese cloth.
  4. In a large pan, put 5 cups of the juice
    Add the fruit pectin to the juice
    Mix well
    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.
    process in hot water bath for 5 minutes
