  1. Peel beets and simmer in water for 30 minutes.
  2. When beets are tender strain off liquid measuring 4 cups of beet juice.
  3. Pour into a large pot.
  4. Stir in lemon juice and pectin.
  5. Bring to a full, rolling boil over high heat.
  6. Stir in sugar all at once and return to a full, rolling boil and boil for 1 minute.
  7. Remove from heat and ladle into clean hot stearilized jars leaving 0.125 inch head space and seal.
  8. I process any jelly for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath even though the recipes don't call for it.
