  • Wash and rinse plastic containers with tight fitting lids. Use 1 to 2 cup size containers.

  • Prepare fruit as directed in the following chart below. For berries crush 1 cup at a time with a potato masher for best results. If using a food processor, pulse to very fine chop. DO NOT PUREE. Jam should have bits of fruit.

  • Measure exact amount of prepared fruit (or juice) along with lemon juice (if called for in recipe) into a large bowl.

  • Measure exact amount of sugar into a separate bowl. Reducing sugars or using sugar substitutes will result in set failure unless you use SURE-JELL FOR LESS OR NO SUGAR NEEDED RECIPES for no or low sugar jams and jellies.

  • Stir sugar into prepared fruit or juice. Mix well. Let stand 10 minutes; stir occasionally.

  • Stir 1 box SURE-JELL PREMIUM FRUIT PECTIN and ¾ cup water in small sauce pan. (Pectin may start out lumpy) Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

  • Stir pectin into fruit mixture. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy, about 3 minutes. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)

  • Pour into prepared containers, leaving ½ inch at top for expansion during freezing; cover.

  • Let stand at room temperature 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks. Otherwise, store in freezer up to a year. Thaw in refrigerator.
