1 1/2 c 100% grape juice (purple, store bought is fine)
1 1/2 c 100% cherry juice (store bought is fine)
2 c 100% apple juice (again, go with store bought)
6 1/2 c sugar, pre measured into a container
1 box powdered pectin
1 tsp butter or margarine
Measure out your sugar into a container that is easily pourable. You will want to pour it quickly. Set it beside your stove, to have handy. Have a timer handy as well.
Get your jars and lids ready. Have your jars sterilized and your lids heating, for a better seal.
Make sure your pot is large enough for the boiling process so it doesn’t boil over. Measure the juice into a pot on the stove, whisk in your powdered pectin until it is thoroughly dissolved. Add your margarine.
Turn stove onto a high heat and bring to a boil. When at a full boil, add the sugar and stir in well till dissolved. Keep stirring until at a full rolling boil. Let it continue to boil for 1 minute while stirring. Set the timer for that 1 minute or watch the clock, you can go over a hair, not under.
Remove from heat and skim the foam off. Pour immediately into prepared jars, put lids and rings on and set on a towel, in a dry area with little air flow. Some people set their jars upside down to make it seal, I personally do not. They all ping, so I know I have a good seal.

5 cups grape juice
6 cups of sugar
1 package powder pectin
1/2 tsp butter
Customize your grape jelly with fresh herbs, spices or liquours
Prepare the grapes by washing, steaming or boiling them to release the
juices. Remove the seeds and pass the juice through a small screened
sieve or jelly bag.
Combine the juice, pectin and butter and stir. Bring to a rolling boil.
Add all the sugar and bring back to a rolling boil. Once at this stage,
continue to bowl for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. You can test the consistency of
the jelly by placing a small amount on a metal spoon that has been left to
cool in the freezer.
Place the jelly in the clean hot sanitized jars, leaving approx 1/4 -1/2 inch
from the top. Wipe the rim of the jars so they are free of any jelly spills.
Place the lids on the jars and tighten the rings on until finger tight.
Place the jars in a boiling hot water bath for 10 minutes to process.
Remove and let sit for 24hrs and until the lids are sealed
