Delicious Homemade Grape Jelly in Just 10 Minutes...

Pin It Now!
Yes. It's totally true! You can have a batch of homemade grape jelly in just 10 minutes! Gone are the days when making grape jelly meant crushing grapes, straining through a cheesecloth and all that jazz. How is it so easy you ask? Welsh's Grape Juice on the shelf at your local grocery store....that's how! And this jelly is SO delicious and economical to make,,,with just 4 ingredients! This project is PERFECT if you are not a baker! All you need to be able to do here is read directions and stir!

Delicious Grape Jelly in Just 10 Minutes
{makes 4 cups}

Ingredients:
3.5 cups of sugar
2 cups unsweetened concorde grape juice, room temperature {I used Welsh's 100% Grape Juice off the shelf at my local Superstore.}
1/2 cup lemon juice
85 ml package of liquid pectin, preferably Certo
4- 1 cup sterilized mason jars with lids

Directions:
Bring sugar, grape juice and lemon juice to a boil in a medium size heavy-bottomed sauce pan. Boil for 7 minutes. Add liquid pectin and stir for 1 minute.Remove from heat. Skim off foam {if any}with a spoon. Pour jelly into mason jars. Let sit at room temperature for 24 hours or until jelly is set. Refrigerate for up to 1 month.

How easy is that? Now you have a tasty homemade gift to give for Christmas! The jars can be easily decorated with ribbon or baker's twine and a tag for a pretty looking present. You could even pair it with a can of refrigerated biscuits from the grocery store if you like. This is definitely my EASIEST homemade gift from the kitchen ever!

{This recipe comes from the August 2012 issue of Chatelaine Magazine...a  Canadian women's magazine that I love.}

{Thank you so much to Greenmunch for providing me with the red baker's twine used in this project! You really must go see their super PRETTY Christmas paper straws, baker's twine and treat bags. You will love them for all your Christmas projects.}
