I have not tried this jelly. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this recipe in The Breakfast Book.


  1. In a 3 or 4 quart saucepan, mix together the lemon juice, sugar, and pectin and bring to a boil, stirring at first to smooth and blend the ingredients. Allow to boil exactly 2 minutes and remove from the heat.
  2. Wet a strong paper towel or a fine textured dishcloth with cold water, wring out, and place the paper or cloth in a strainer over a pyrex 2-cup measure. Let the jelly slowly drip through. Cool and seal, or cool and refrigerate.
  3. Orange Jelly: Use 1/2 cup orange juice plus 1/4 cup lemon juice and grated zest of 1 orange (this is strained out after imparting its flavor).
