Ingredients:  
To make the juice
Fill pot about ½ full of berries. Put water until just covers berries. Boil and mash berries for 30 to 40 minutes. Strain juice (I use a pillow case). Juice freezes well.

To make jelly:

Get 4 cups of berry juice hot (almost boiling); sprinkle and stir in 1 box of Surejell, making sure that it dissolves. Add 5 ½ cups sugar in small amounts while stirring. Bring to a rolling boil (should be tiny bubbles where you can’t see bottom of pot at all) Boil like this for one minute. Remove from heat; skim scum off top of juice; ladle into jars.


4 packs of sure-jell
10 lb. sugar
1 gallon of juice
