Grape Jelly

It’s day THREE of Getting Canned week here at Dragonfly Designs. Please grab a button {below} and invite friends to follow along as we share recipes, tips and eye candy!



Today is all about Grape Jelly and a LINKY PARTY!


This was my first time canning grape jelly {gasp} so I asked my Grandma {who is 85 and still going strong}, “Grandma, do you have any tips for me on how to can grape jelly?” She said “why yes, dear, use the directions on the package of Certo.” Laugh out loud Grandma! And so I did.

I cannot tell you how excited we were to find that my Grandmas loan grape vine had produced a bountiful crop this year!

Well.
She and I were excited.
The boys were more into frog chasing and stick finding.

Following the trusty Certo directions, I combined my ingredients, mashed grapes, pectin and sugar. I allowed that to come to a boil.


Again, not having fancy canning equipment, I strained my mixture of skins and seeds.


I brought the juice to a boil then put it into my hot, sterilized jars for processing. I’ve been told that you can add red wine or grape juice to this step if you do not have enough liquid.


Please link up your Canning Posts with us today! This is still an open linky so any other projects, recipes or inspiration are welcome! Be sure to visit tomorrow for some good ol’ Apple Sauce.
