I like jelly better than jams, I think it's the way they look, all clear and sparkly.

I was really nervous to try this recipe, but it is wonderful!!! It seemed too easy and I wasn't sure what kind of apple juice to use. I didn't know if she literally meant apple juice from the bottle or like the juice you get when you cook down apples. Anyways, I used just regular old apple juice out of a bottle and it turned out wonderfully! Great taste, and it turned out a nice golden color. A+
