Grape Jelly

Grape Jelly created by yummysmell420

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.

    Only things missing from this are storage and set time before using and moving to storage.

    What’s the best storage process for this? Just in the shelf in the garage or in the freezer? How long does the jelly need to sit before (it’s set) using it?
