Concord grape jelly

Yield: 32 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3½ pounds Concord grapes
½ cup Water
7 cups Sugar
1 pack Liquid pectin (3-oz)

Recipe by: Southern Living Preparation Time: 0:30 Sort and wash grapes; remove stems, and place in a Dutch oven. Crush grapes, and add water. Bring mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Press mixture through a jellybag or cheesecloth, extracting 4 cups juice. Cover and let sit overnight in a cool place. Strain juice through a double thickness of damp cheesecloth.

Combine juice and sugar in a large Dutch oven, and stir well. Place over high heat; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a rapid boil. Add pectin, and bring to a full rolling boil; boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and skim off foam with a metal spoon. Quickly pour hot mixture into hot sterilized jars, leaving ¼-inch headspace; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands. Process in boiling-water bath 5 minutes.

Yield: 8 half pints.
