You know why this recipe is so great? Because it’s inexpensive, takes 10 minutes to prepare and doesn’t require crushing and boiling grapes. Who doesn’t love that! It also tastes awesome and is perfect if you’re just getting started with canning. Here’s what you need:
3 c. grape juice
5 c. sugar
1 pkg. pectin
Prepare canning equipment.
Combine grape juice and pectin in a large pot. Bring to boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Stir in sugar all at once and return to boil for 2 minutes.
Skim off foam and ladle into jars, leaving 1/4″ head space. Wipe rims, secure lid and tighten ring.
Place jars in hot water bath, cover and process for 10 minutes. Process time begins when water is at a full boil.
Remove jars and place on a towel. You will hear the lids “pop” when they are sealed.
Let the jars cool overnight. Refrigerate and eat or store at room temperature for up to one year.
Makes 5 half pint jars.
