How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice

 

How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice My mom grows concord grapes in her backyard. Growing up we would juice them together each year. She would then make a few dozen batches of delicious grape jelly from her homemade grape juice (post here). This is my favorite jelly! It is so flavorful, sweet, and delicious! It is easy and quick to make, especially considering the fact that the extras will store for up to a year. I’d highly recommend trying this fantastic recipe.

Instructions

  1. Begin by sanitizing the lids and jars. Simmer them in boiling water for at least 10 minutes. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice
  2. Juice two lemons. Strain the lemon juice to remove pulp and seeds. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice
  3. Combine 1/4 Cup lemon juice, 1 Cup water, and 2 Cups grape juice into a 6 or 8 Quart saucepan.
  4. Measure the exact amount of 5 1/3 Cups sugar. Pour it into a separate bowl. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice
  5. Stir 1 pkg. of MCP Premium Fruit Pectin into the juice in the saucepan. Optional: add 1/2 tsp. of butter or margarine to reduce foaming—we didn’t add butter.
  6. Bring the liquid mixture to a full rolling boil (a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice
  7. Add sugar to liquid mixture in saucepan. Return to a full rolling boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  8. Skim off any foam with a metal spoon. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice
  9. Ladle or funnel immediately into prepared jars, filling each to within 1/4 inch of top. Wipe jar rims and threads and cover with two-piece lids. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice
  10. Finally, you need to seal the jars by putting them into a waterbath canner. This will seal the lids tight to avoid fermentation. How to Make Grape Jelly out of Grape Juice Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water if needed.

  11. Bring the water to a boil with the lid on for 10 minutes. Turn the heat off. Pull the rack up and place it on the sides of the canner to access the bottles. Carefully use a neoprene glove or a canning jar lifter like this to remove the jars: canningjarlifter
  12. Remove jars and place them upright on a towel or cooling rack to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing centers of lids with finger. If lid springs back the jar is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary. Let prepared jars stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Store unopened jelly in cool, dry, dark place for up to 1 year. Refrigerate opened jellies up to 3 weeks.

When ready to open a jar, carefully (so you are gripping the lid only and not the lip of the glass jar) use a church key to pop the sealed lid off.
