  • Remove blossom and stem ends from apples. Finely chop unpeeled apples; place in large saucepan. Stir in water. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer 10 min. Crush apples; simmer, covered, additional 5 min. Place prepared apples in jelly bag; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press bag gently to remove any remaining juices. Measure exactly 6 cups prepared juice into large saucepan. Combine pectin crystals and 1/4 cup sugar; stir into prepared juice.
  • Bring to boil on high heat. Stir in remaining sugar. Return to boil; cook 1 min. Remove from heat. Stir and skim 5 min.
  • Pour into warm sterilized jars, filling up to 1/4 inch from rims. Cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours or until set.

How to Accurately Measure the Sugar

To ensure accuracy of the sugar measure when preparing jellies, use a dry measuring cup to measure the sugar, then place all the measured sugar in a separate bowl before adding it to the juice mixture in saucepan.

If You Don't Have a Jelly Bag

If you don't have a jelly bag, you can use cheesecloth instead. Stack 3 layers of cheesecloth, then moisten with water. Place prepared fruit on centre of cheesecloth, then gather cheesecloth at top and tie closed with kitchen string. Hang and let prepared fruit drip into bowl as directed.

Food Facts

Cooked jellies can be stored unopened on the shelf for up to 1 year. After opening, refrigerate and use within 3 weeks.

    We used August apples which are yellow and sweet. We followed the recipe on the Certo box of crystals and the jelly didn't set. We reboiled and added more Certo and it was the same thing. Can anyone please give me any ideas as to what to try next?
