I don't know what I did wrong, but I only got about 3-3/4 half pint jars instead of seven. I'm sure I followed the recipe exactly.
Delicious jelly and so easy to make.
Very good jelly, and good accurate recipe. This is basically the recipe in a Sure-Jell box. I had sweet cherries and used just 4 cups sugar per batch. One recipe took 3 lbs. of cherries; I cooked them whole for 30 min and strained as others have suggested. Yield was 48 oz., or 3 pints, of jelly that thickened beautifully.
Very easy to make and it turned out awesome!
This recipe was so easy. I have never done cherry jam before- the process was so easy. NOTE: I took another's advice and threw all the cherries (pits also) in the pot with the water and then smashed them when they were done cooking for 30 minutes with a potato smasher. This was easier than smashing first. I also added half a lemon since my cherries were so sweet. I made four batches of this and every time I got 6 & 1/2 (8oz) jars each time. My last batch I added vanilla bean to the brewing cherries- it tastes so great.
Thanks for an easy jelly.
I was given ALOT of cherries from a friend and decieded to try your recipe. I ended up with 72 1/2 pints of your wonderful jelly. It has that slight "tang" from the cherry yet sweet like a jelly should be. I have given some out to friends and family and they all loved it. Thank you so much for sharing this easy and delicious recipe.
I loved this recipe.. I used bing cherries and boiled the whole, then mashed with a potoatoe masher. I kept the pulp and added it to another jam(worked perfectly), I also boiled it for a couple of extra minutes and skipped the final water bath. Worked great.
I loved this recipe! By far this is the easiest and tastiest jelly i have ever made. This is basically FOOL_PROOF! Thanks a bunch!!!
Made this jelly and it was easy and tasted great.
Never made jelly before this was soooo ez. We have a cherry tree that produces like crazy and this was a very good way not to have to pit all those cherries!!!!
