A personal favorite of my family that goes back several generations. Can also use 7 1/2 cup(s) of Splenda for low-fat jelly.

How to Make Plum Jelly

    Bring 5 1/2 cups plum juice to a rolling boil; add 6 TBSP Fruit Pectin and bring to another rolling boil; add sugar. Boil til juice runs clear and spins a thread. Let set approximately 15 to 20 minutes then skim off the top. Pour into 9 to 10 clean half pint jars and seal.
