This is an amazing fruit-flavored jelly to use as a spread on bread or crackers!
4 cups (1 3/4 pounds) granulated sugar
3 cups water
1 box Sure-Jell fruit pectin
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 small box Jell-O (any red flavor)
Measure sugar and set aside.
Measure water into a large saucepan. Add Sure-Jell and baking soda, and mix well. Place over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a hard boil. Boil hard 1 minute. At once stir in sugar, then Jell-O. Return to a full rolling boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam with metal spoon. Pour quickly into glasses. Cover jelly at once with 1/8 inch hot paraffin.
Makes 7 medium glasses jelly.
