Jelly-Making (with pectin)

Jelly that is made from all types of fruit, both high-pectin and low pectin, with added (commercial) pectin – liquid or powdered. This method results in a higher quantity of jelly than the no-pectin jelly-making method and does not need to be tested for the gel stage.
   
Make fruit juice.
Wash fruit, dice fruit and crush soft fruit and simmer with water to extract juice. Strain slowly. You can also use pre-made 100% fruit juice.
   
Make jelly.
Combine juice and powdered pectin (plus lemon juice for low acid fruits). Bring to a boil. Add sugar all at once and boil as hard as possible for 1 minute. Remove from heat and discard foam. Fill hot jars with hot jelly then process for 10 minutes in a boiling water canner.
NOTE: liquid pectin is added after the jelly mixture has been boiled.
