Jelly it is Then!
One of the reasons I wanted to learn to can this summer was to make jelly. Drew had commented that he really liked wild plum jelly and I decided I would learn this year. Well, we were unable to get the plums and I thought all was lost. I was explaining this to a friend at school and she told me that she had canned some plum juice a few years back and I could have it if I wanted it. I was more than grateful for this juice. So, today I made wild plum jelly...23 1/2 jars to be exact. It is really quite easy to make. all it takes is 5 1/2 cups of juice, 7 1/2 cups of sugar, and one package of fruit pectin. (this recipe makes 12 pints.) I can't wait to break into one and try it! (I'll be sure to let you know how good it tastes!)
