Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 1/2 cups cherry juice
(abt 3 lbs or 2 one-quart boxes sour
cherries and 1/2 cup water)
1 package powdered pectin
4 1/2 cups sugar

To prepare juice. Select fully ripe cherries. Sort, wash, and remove
stems; do not pit. Crush cherries, add water, cover, bring to 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, stirring constantly, bring quickly to a full
rolling 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 quickly. Pour jelly immediately into hot,
sterile canning jars to 1/4-inch from top. Seal, and process 5 minutes in
a boiling water bath.

This recipe yields about 6 eight-ounce jars.
