You know how occasionally you go out for breakfast. You get toast in your breakfast and they bring you the jellies. My favorite has always been the Mixed Fruit Jelly. It is getting harder and harder to find. By the time you order it online and pay the shipping, you are paying $12 a bottle. Not going to do that. So I read up on Smuckers Mixed Fruit Jelly, what was in it. This is the recipe I came up with after a couple hit and misses. It may not be it. . . . but really close! This uses juice bought at store, believe me, alot faster!

  • 2 c
    100% apple juice (again, go with store bought)

How to Make MIXED FRUIT JELLY

Step-by-Step

  1. Measure 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.
  2. Get your jars and lids ready. Have your jars sterilized and your lids heating, for a better seal.
  3. Make 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.
  4. Turn 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.
  5. Remove 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.
