What You Need

2
cups  prepared juice (buy about 1-1/2 lb. fully ripe Concord grapes)
2/3
cup  plus 2 Tbsp. water, divided
4
cups  sugar, measured into separate bowl
1
pouch  CERTO Fruit Pectin

Make It

RINSE clean plastic containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly.

STEM and crush grapes thoroughly, 1 layer at a time. Place in large saucepan; add 2/3 cup water. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on low heat 15 min., stirring occasionally. Place 3 layers of damp cheesecloth or jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared fruit into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure exactly 2 cups juice into large bowl. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally.

MIX remaining 2 Tbsp. water and the pectin in small bowl. Add to juice mixture; stir 3 min. or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)

FILL all containers immediately to within 1/2 inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours. Jelly is now ready to use. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 1 year. Thaw in refrigerator before using.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make it Easy
Omit 2/3 cup of the water and substitute 2 cups purchased grape juice for the prepared grape juice.
How to Measure Dry Ingredients Precisely
To get exact level cup measures of dry ingredients, such as sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cup, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife or metal spatula.
Jam or Jelly Didn't Set?
Every once in a while, you may find that your jam does not set the way you expected. If your efforts resulted in a runny batch, try our Remake Directions to improve your finished jam. If your jam still doesn't set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.
