      I've made about a dozen batches of this so far, and it's really excellent! A few differences - I started with chokecherry juice I'd already made and skipped to step 3. I also found from previous jelly-making experience that if you add 1/4 tsp of real butter, it reduces the amount of skimming required to almost zero, and doesn't foam up as badly while cooking. Then I added 1/4 tsp of almond extract to the entire batch of finished product before ladling into jars; it really brings out the chokecherry flavor.<br/>Re: processing time - I follow the Ball pectin box time recommendations, as the lids don't 'pop' until after they are removed from the water and are cooling. I also cool right-side up. <br/>Thanks for this recipe! ~TJ

      Loved this recipe for Chokecherry Jelly. It seemed like a lot of lemon juice but I went with it anyway and so glad I did. It really brought out the chokecherry flavour. I liked it better than my previous recipe and I will not be looking further! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
