Homemade Cherry Jelly~ Happy Monday

In case you missed this in the book reviews~I am going to re-post it.
I made this jelly last week and it is oh so good and easy.

Psalm 34:8 

 8O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

I love to buy jelly and jam from My Amish Friends~it is oh so good. Last year I started making my own. My neighbor brought us some wild cherries. Oh this recipe is so good and simple. ENJOY!

I did pit mine because they had worms and I wanted to make sure we had no worm jelly~tehe!

3 1/2 c. cherry juice (about 3 lb. or 2 qt. boxes sour cherries and 1/2 c. water)
1 pkg. powdered pectin
4 1/2 c. sugar

To prepare juice. Select fully ripe cherries. Soft; wash and remove stems. Do not pit. Crush cherries, add water and cover. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Extract juice.To make jelly: measure juice into a kettle. Add pectin and stir well. Place on high heat and stir constantly. Bring quickly to a boil that cannot be stirred down. Add sugar, continue stirring and heat again to a full rolling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute. Remove from heat; skim off foam from top quickly. Pour jelly immediately into hot containers and seal. Makes about 6 (8 ounce) glasses.

Have a blessed day~

I love cherry jelly. Growing up near Wisconsin I always enjoyed Door County Cherries. Miss them now.
