Making and Canning Homemade Grape Jelly Recipe

Making homemade grape jelly is a lot easier than you might think. The recipe I like to use can be found on the back of the Sure Jell box.

Grape Jelly Recipe

Pick grapes from stems and wash. Once they are washed, drain them really good and crush them in a large pan. Cover crushed grapes with just enough water to lightly cover them. Bring to a full boil and reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain juice through a cheesecloth to get any particles of fruit out of your mixture. Now your juice has been completed.

Measure out 7 cups of granulated sugar and set aside.

Measure 5 cups of grape juice into a large pan. Stir in 1 box of Sure Jell into the pan. Add in 1/2 teaspoon margarine to reduce foaming. Bring to a full rolling boil. Add granulated sugar quickly and return to a full rolling boil. Boil this mixture for exactly 1 minute. Turn off the heat. Skim off foam if necessary with a metal spoon and then fill your jars leaving a 1/2" headspace. Seal jars and place in a water bath canner for 5 minutes.

This recipe will make 8 of your 8 ounce jars.
