  • PREPARE JAR: Wash one half-pint jar and screw band in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over one flat lid in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • PREPARE A TRIAL BATCH: Measure jam or jelly into small (1-qt.) saucepan. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar, lemon juice and pectin; stir until well blended. Return to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon. Immediately pour into sterilized jar. Cover and let stand up to 24 hours to check set of jam or jelly. Meanwhile, store opened pouch of pectin in refrigerator. Store jar of jam or jelly from trial batch in refrigerator.
  • PREPARE REMAINDER OF BATCH: If Trial Batch sets satisfactorily, prepare remainder of batch in 6- to 8-qt. stockpot, remaking no more than 8 cups of jam or jelly at one time and using same directions as for Trial Batch with the above-listed measures of sugar, lemon juice and pectin for each 1 cup of jam or jelly. Ladle into sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly.
  • PROCESS JARS: Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. for jelly; 10 min. for jam. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lids with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.) Discard any leftover pectin in opened pouch.

Special Equipment Needed

How to Measure Larger Amounts of Ingredients

For convenience in measuring larger amounts of sugar, lemon juice and pectin: 3 tsp. = 1 Tbsp., 8 Tbsp. = 1/2 cup, and 16 Tbsp. = 1 cup.


If your jam or jelly still doesn’t set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dearest Kraft: This recipe just saved my Christmas. Dearest Kraft: This recipe just saved my Christmas. I was making Red Pepper Jelly and used liquid pectin for the first time. What a mistake. I followed your directions exactly and Viola!, Red Pepper Perfection. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Salvaged my Red Pepper Jelly Not sure if my measurements were off or if the problem was with the liquid pectin. My test back firmed up bit too much for my liking. When I reprocessed the rest of the batch, I halved the ingredients and worked perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used these remake instructions for apple jelly. Thank You for saving my jelly! My jelly using Certo was like syrup. So I tried the remake with 2 cups and it came out jellied and even better, because the lemon and the 1/4 tsp apple pie spice I added to the remake made the jelly taste less sweet..
