DIRECTIONS

  • Use only fully ripened fruit.
  • Wash and stem the fruit and measure 8 cups worth.
  • Place the fruit into a saucepan and mash.
  • Add 1 cup of cold water and cook over moderate heat till the juice starts to flow (up to 10 minutes).
  • Strain the juice through a jelly bag, and for each cup of juice add 1½ cups of sugar.
  • Place the juice in a deep saucepan and mix in the sugar.
  • Place over a high heat and bring to a boil. Hold at the boil for 15 minutes or till the mixture passes the jell sheeting test.
  • Stir the mixture constantly in order to prevent the bottom from burning.
  • Remove the mixture, skim off the red foam and pour the jelly into hot sterilized jelly jars.
  • Seal while hot.
