Remove from heat and skim any foam. Ladle hot jelly into hot sterile half-pint jelly jars, leaving a 1/4" head space. Wipe rims clean of any spillage. Top each jar with seal and band. Tighten to fingertip tight. Place filled jars into water bath canner and bring to a full rolling boil. Allow to process for 5 minutes after it comes to a boil.
