Jelly Anyone?

Batch number one of my currant jelly is done!

BUMMER! Only one of my twelve jars is properly sealed and it looks like my jelly hasn’t set quite well enough either. I’ll remake and reprocess this batch tonight I guess.

As for it being so clear...I have learned that you don’t squeeze the juice through the cloth; in this case a flour sack towel. Let gravity do its thing. Squeezing it makes the fruit juice cloudy and results in a more jam-like looking jelly.

My helper likes the way the KitchenAid juicer attachment “poops” out the seeds, skins and excess pulp. ;)

Wow it is beautiful! And you are a serious jelly maker, and you have a talented 'crew'!

That jelly is crystal I have ever seen. Your little guy looks like he is having fun helping.
