of grape juice, that I got for pennies,** with a project in mind:
I remember the days when my Mom and I picked grapes and she slaved for hours to make the jelly herself, boiling, straining, etc.
The final result was delicious but it too SOOOOO much work!
It could be SO easy!
- 6 Cups Juice (all natural, no sugar added)
- 4-5 cups sugar
- 2 boxes pectin
That is it!
Prep you jars in a hot water bath, making sure your lids are in there too – so the rubber edges get softened up.
Get your hot jars ready for ladling in the yumminess…
Boil the juice and the sugar, for at least 5 minutes…
Add the two packs of Pectin and keep boiling for 2 more minutes.
Ladle into the jars, seal and pop into a hot water bath for five minutes.
I used $1.00/1 coupons on double coupon day to make them just $.25 a bottle!
Each jar makes 12 jars of jelly, so each jar comes to about $.02 of jelly juice.
Add the sugar (free) and pectin ($1/box), (again, with coupons) and I owned the jars…
No artificial anything and very little of my time was involved.
