Cherry Almond Jelly

Recipe Ingredients

3 1/2 cups cherry juice (Cherry Juicy Juice works fine)

4 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 box pectin

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon almond extract (I used a little extra )


Bring 1 cup cherry juice, vanilla and almond extract to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.

Add remaining juice and pectin and return to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.

Add sugar and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes.

Pour up in jars, seal, and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

Yield: 5 cups

If you like maraschino cherries, you'll love this super easy recipe. Am going to plant cherry trees so I'll have my own juice, but until then . . .
