Grape Jelly

Post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

  • 3 cups grape juice (needs to be 100% juice, can prepare from frozen concentrate)
  • 1 package powdered pectin
  • 4 cups sugar

In a large saucepan combine the juice and the pectin. Stir it up to eliminate all the lumps of pectin. Bring the mixture to a full boil over medium heat, stirring some as necessary. Add the sugar and return to a boil. Boil for a full minute and remove from heat. If you want you can skim off the foamy stuff on the top of the mixture into a small bowl to use up first. Ladle the jelly into clean sterilized jars and seal with bands and lids. Process in a boiling water bath for about 10 minutes to seal. Remove the jars and allow to cool before storing. Makes about 5 cups.

If you plan on using this jelly right away, you don’t need to seal them. Just put them in the refrigerator and use up! These would also make great gifts…there are all kinds of interesting combinations of juice out there you could try. Have fun!

  1. Do you know of anyone that knows how to can what they call "Just Fruit" jams and jellies. I have used the low or no sugar pectins and they are great-but would like to find a recipe for "Just Fruit." Love your blog.
    1. Hi Nina, No I don't have a recipe for a no sugar jam or jelly...I'd love one though! I'll post one if I ever come across one though!
