Wipe the rim of the jar with a damp rag, remove the air bubbles and add the lids. Add the canning jars to the boiling water bath and process jars at a hard boil for 10 minutes. I use the Ball electric water bath canner and love it.

  1. My husband and I tried this recipe and it turned out great. Now I must confess I have an innate drive to fudge a recipe and take a slight detour. Even if Gordon Ramsey himself was barking orders next to me, I would find some way to mesh two recipes together, and clean out the fridge of this ‘n that leftovers In the process. Needless to say, I followed it as closely as I could and it’s delish! I used peaches from an attempted bourbon infusion. Cooked them way down and then “essentially” followed the recipe steps. We added 1.5 c chopped bell peppers. We’re listening to the lid pops as I write this review. .

    1. Thank you so much for the comment! I am the same way. It is kind of hard for me to write the recipes, as I just make a lot of stuff up on the fly. In doing this I measure everything and write it down. Lol. But I think most recipes are a matter of preference and just give you a starting point!

  2. I already have peach juice that I strained from fresh peaches a few months ago that I put in freezer to use. How many cups of peach juice will be needed to make 1 batch of jelly
