If you don't make your own juice then making jelly is pretty darn fast.
I love grape jelly. But, the only kind I like is Welch's grape jelly. The other brands just don't thrill me.
I had thought about making my own juice with fresh grapes but that just seemed like to much work for me to do right now. Besides, what if I didn't like it either.
What! I turned it over and saw it was a blend of three grapes, water and sugar. I wasn't sure what was going to happy to my jelly now. Yet, I carried on to find out.
Then I poured in four cups of juice and 7 cups of sugar in the pot and mixed it well.
Even though my jelly recipe does not call for lemon I thought since I wasn't using fresh grapes, I would go ahead and add it.
I put in 4 tablespoons. NO, you can't taste it once it's all mixed in.
I had a little bit of jelly left over. Not enough to pour into a jar. I just poured into a little bowl and stuck it in refrigerator. I checked it after it was cold. It set perfectly and the taste was soooo good!
I knew I had a winner here! So, I made another batch for gifts.
I really hope you will try this recipe too. It's quick. It's easy and it's oh so good!
