6 cups sugar
3 cups water
¼ tsp. Baking soda
1 envelope strawberry Kool-Aid
1 6oz bottle Ball liquid pectin
In large pot, bring to a full rolling boil- sugar, water, soda and Kool-Aid.
Add liquid pectin and return to a full boil.
Boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and skim foam from top.
Immediately pour into hot canning jars and seal finger tight. Place in water bath and procss for 5 minutes.
NOTE: You must wash your canning jars in hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly, then place them in a large pot with their rings bring to a boil. Use a small pot to heat lids…BUT DO NOT BOIL. Keep them on the stove hot, while you prepare your jelly. Pull one jar at a time out of hot water bath to fill with jelly. Remember… rings are applied only finger tight.
If these notes are confusing for you then visit Visual Recipes. They have a wonderful tutor with pictures on how to set up to make jelly and explain it step by step.
I’m going to make some strawberry and grape jelly to go into Christmas Gift baskets. I like jellies because they are so clear and pretty and I feel they are easy to make.
