To prepare juice. Sort and wash fully ripe berries; remove any stems or

To make jelly. Measure juice into a kettle. Stir in sugar. Place on
high heat and, stirring constantly, bring quickly to a full rolling boil
that cannot be stirred down. Add pectin 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.
