    Darlene Summers's Note:

    Grape jelly is my favorite. My husband makes this for me. He makes blackberry, plum and crab apple too. He is an excellent cook. He is the canner in our family--he cans everything!! The cooking time is only after it comes to a boil.

      This is really good jelly. I used grape juice. At first, I didn't think it got thick enough, but hubby says it is just right. I put some in the freezer. Thanks for a great recipe.

      WOW! Wonderful grape jelly. I have made this recipe three times this summer to make 24 jars of jelly. I had a 5 gal. buckets 3/4 full of grapes and this is the recipe I used. Turned out great. Still have a little juice left so will make some to drink.

      Wonderful tasting jelly. I made 2 batches using 9 lbs. of grapes which yield a total of 8 pts.
      I tasted the juice after juicing and didn't feel there was enough grape flavor so I put all the juice in a pan and reduced it 25%. I then proceeded with the recipe as directed.
      The end product had the most delicous grape flavor.
