    Great Recipe but I modified it with 1 tbs. of fresh squeezed lemon juice in the liquid while cooking. I'm an old retired guy with time on my hands and enjoy cooking and trying new things. This was my first attempt at making jelly. It turned out great! People waiting for their jar to be delivered.

    My mom and I just made this jelly and I have to say that it is an easy and great tasting recipe. About to go make another batch. I must say that we did use a couple cups of the purple scuppernong grapes with the bronze to give it a rose color, which turned out so pretty. Thanks for sharing.
