This one would make Grandma proud! My Gram never wasted anything, and I have to admit I felt very good making jelly and not using anything from my peach supply other than what I would have thrown out. I read the directions on the pectin after I made this and noticed it said not to squeeze the juice out of the pulp left in the cheesecloth because it may make the jelly cloudy. I'd already squeezed it...it doesn't look cloudy so far, but I'll remember next time! It tasted good when I skimmed off the foam, and it set up after processing. Thanks for a penny stretcher!

I had 9 cups of juice after soaking so I made a triple batch. I picked out the pits and spun the peels in my salad spinner to get the last bit of juice. I only boiled for one minute per the pectin package after it came back to the boil. Mine set up just fine. A nice light flavor - not intense by any means but very pleasant. I ended up with 14 half pints on the triple batch.

Well we have tried this with peaches and apples and comes out great!

For the apple we also add about 1 teaspoon cinnamon with the pectin per 3 cups of juice.

Thanks for an easy jelly!!

I make this recipe about every other year. It is a great way to get every last bit of what you pay for! lol I have found over the past 16 years though that my jelly doesn't always set up like it should. Never fear though because if the jelly is used as is...it makes a great syrup for pancakes!

I love that I don't have to throw peels and cores out anymore!! I made this recipe with peachs and with pears! The peach one was a little sweet and maybe one day I'll try and pare it down. The pear one was very good.

This recipe was good. However the jelly is extremely sweet. Defiantly worth making out of the left over peelings, but be prepared it is VERY VERY sweet. Also note it only makes about 3-4 pints of jelly. So double up if you want 7 or 8 pints. Also we got 11 cups of juice from this process. I recommend tippling the recipe so you do not waste the juice.

I made this a few years ago and forgot to say YUUUUMMMMM! I had no problems, and just came back to rate it after making it again this year. Pretty rose color to it, and it was well received in Christmas baskets last time I made it.

Wow! Very good! The taste surprised me! It tastes like those peach ring gummy candies, which I love! The jelly did take a little while to set up, but it set just fine. It has a very pretty color and a wonderful taste!
