How to USe a Jelly Bag

Place jelly bag in its holder. Rinse bag by pouring about 2 cups boiling water over it; drain. Set jelly bag over large bowl; pour in cooked fruit and juice. Cover and allow juice to drip slowly through jelly bag. Most of the juice will have dripped through after 4 hours. Several layers of cheesecloth layered in a mesh strainer may be used if you do not have a jelly bag.
