Making Juice for Jelly



Wrinkled was not one of the things I wanted to be when I grew up.





Watermelon Jelly

4 cups seeded, diced watermelon
3 l/2 cups sugar
2 TBS. lemon juice
l/2 of a 6-ounce package liquid fruit pectin (l foil pouch)

Place diced watermelon in a blender container or food processor
bowl.  Cover and blend or process until smooth (should have 2 cups
of watermelon puree).  In a dutch oven or 8 quart kettle, combine
watermelon puree, sugar and lemon juice.  Bring the mixture to a full
rolling boil (a boil that cannot be stirred down) over high heat, stirring
constantly with a long handled wooden spoon.  Stir in the pectin all at
once.  Return mixture to a full rolling boil, boil hard for 1 minute,
stirring constantly.  remove from heat, skim off foam, ladle jelly into
clean hot l/2 pint jars, leaving l/4 inch head space, wipe jar rims,
adjust lids.  Allow to cool completely away from drafts then store in

Pyracantha Jelly Recipe
     FROM JERRY M. PARSONS, Ph.D.
     Professor and Horticulturist
 

The fact is, pyracantha berries are entirely edible and there is at least one recipe I've discovered for pyracantha jelly.

If you have a surplus of pyracantha berries this fall and would just as soon the birds did not rob you of them, you might enjoy the taste of pyracantha jelly. It is quite tasty, much like apple jelly in appearance and flavor.

Here it is for you aspiring cooks:

To extract the juice, boil pound of berries in 3/4 cup of water for one minute.
Strain the juice through clean cloth. To one cup juice, add one teaspoon
lemon juice and package powdered pectin. Bring it to hard boil; add 3/4 cup sugar and continue rolling boil 1 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour into hot,sterilized jars.


Tomato Jelly

      7 lb Ripe tomatoes
      2 c  Vinegar
     1 tb Whole cloves
      3 ea. Cinnamon sticks
      3 tb Sugar

  Scald and peel ripe tomatoes. Cook 45 minutes (add no water) stirring
  often to prevent burning and sticking. Strain through a sieve
  discarding the juice and saving the pulp. In a saucepan combine
  vinegar and spices tied in a spice bag. Boil for 20 minutes. Remove
  spice bag and add sugar and tomato pulp to vinegar. Cook slowly for
  6-7 hours or until thick and sticky. Pour into sterile jars, hot
  water bath for 10 to 15 minutes.



Beet Jelly

     12 - 13 medium beets {peel and cut into small pieces}
     1/2 cup lemon juice
     1 pkg. Sure Jell
     6 cups sugar

Wash beets and peel, cut into small pieces. Grind and cover with water. Cook until tender strain through a jelly cloth. add lemon juice, sure jell, stir until dissolved. Put over high heat and stir until mixture boils hard. At once stir in 6 cups sugar, bring to a full rolling boil, boil hard 1 minute or until jelly sheets from spoon. Remove from heat skim off foam and pour into glasses.

Chokecherry Jelly *

 3 cups chokecherry juice
 6-1/2 cups sugar
 2 foil pouches liquid fruit pectin (Certo)
 1/4 tsp. almond extract (optional)

 Pour juice into large kettle.  Add sugar and stir to mix.  Place
 over high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Stir in
 pectin, bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard 1 minute, stirring
 constantly.  Remove from heat and stir and skim for 5 minutes.
 Add extract.  Seal in hot jars.  Makes about 9 half pints.  Note:
 Almond extract gives a stronger cherry taste.

****chokecherry pits contain cyanide and are very poisonous, never can the
cherries with pits, or grind them. The leaves are also poisonous.

Chokecherry Syrup
Equal parts cherries and water, mash the cherries thoroughly, squeeze pulp through cloth supported by colander. Combine equal parts juice and sugar, bring to boil and boil to density you want.

Chokecherry-Apple Butter
Combine 4 cups apple pulp and 2 cups seedless cherry pulp. Mix well and
heat till boiling, stirring. Add sugar to taste and 1/2 tsp. almond extract.
Ladle into hot jars and process to applesauce times.
 



Quince Jelly

The lemon juice is really only necessary if the quince jelly doesn't "take"
within the allotted time.

  5 large (each 10 ounces) quinces
  8-1/2 cups sugar (3-1/2 pounds)
  1 to 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juices (if necessary)

  Prepare six 8 ounce jelly jars.

Rub the quinces briskly with a towel to remove any down on the skin, if there is any. (Don't peel them; the skin is important for the jelly.) Cut the quinces in half, then using a melon ball maker, remove the white core and the seeds, and reserve them. Tie the seeds and the cores together in a piece of cheesecloth.

Place the fruit and the seed bundle in a large heavy stock pot. Add water
to cover by about 1 inch so the quinces are floating slightly but not
wallowing. Cover, bring to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce the
heat so the liquid is simmering merrily.

Cook, partially covered so very little liquid evaporates, until the quinces
can be pierced easily with a metal skewer, 25 to 40 minutes depending
on the fruit. While the quinces are cooking, press on the seed bundle
often to extract the pectin. Drain, reserving the liquid and the seed
bundle.

Measure out 6-1/4 cups liquid and return it and the seed bundle to the
pot. Add the sugar, stir, and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Reduce the heat so the liquid is boiling steadily but not wildly, and cook,
stirring and pressing on the bag of seeds, until the liquid thickens,anywhere from 10 to 25 minutes. (To test for consistency, drizzle some jelly on a cold plate, place it in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 minutes, and then check to see if it has thickened enough that it won't run all over the plate.

If it is still very runny, continue cooking until it thickens to your liking.) If
the liquid hasn't jelled within 30 minutes, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon
juice and cook until it jells, an additional 5 to 10 minutes.

Remove the jelly from the heat and strain it, if necessary, so it is perfectly clear. Ladle the jelly into the sterilized jars and seal according to manufacturer's instructions.

  Makes 6 8 ounce jars.

Making Jelly Without Added Pectin

Date: May 1989 (Revised April 1995)

Source: University of Wisconsin

This is the old way of making jelly and it's still a very good way, provided the fruit is rich in natural pectin. Crab apples, green apples, sour cherries, and Concord grapes are examples of such fruit. You use less sugar with this method, but you must boil the mixture for a longer time and you end up with less jelly.

Note from Trish:
If you are not sure if a fruit has enough pectin, make this test:

Alcohol test. Add 1 tablespoon cooked, cooled fruit juice to 1 tablespoon denatured alcohol (rubbing alcohol, everyday 70 percent kind). Stir slightly to mix. Juices rich in pectin will form a solid jelly-like mass. Juices low in pectin will form small particles of jelly-like material. (Note: Denatured alcohol is poisonous. Do not taste the tested juice. Thoroughly wash all utensils used in this test.)

If several small jelly-like pieces form, however, the pectin content of the fruit is only moderate. Use only a 3/4 cup of sugar for each cup of juice. If the mixture forms small particles, the fruit has too little pectin to make jelly unless you add commercial pectin. In any case, do not taste the mixture as it is not for human consumption. Just throw it down the drain and wash equipment well.

If the fruit contains enough pectin, measure it into a large pot and bring juice to a boil.
Add a measured amount of sugar stirring well until it dissolves. Boil rapidly until the mixture reaches the jellying point.

There are two simple ways to test whether jelly made without added pectin is done. The most common but least dependable way is to dip a cold metal spoon in to the boiling mixture. Hold it a foot or more above the kettle--out of the steam--and turn it sideways. If the mixture forms 2 drops that flow together and fall off the spoon in a sheet, the jelly is done.

The better test is to use a jelly, candy or deep fat thermometer. Before starting to cook your jelly, take the temperature of boiling water. This needs to be done because boiling point varies with different altitude and the accuracy of most household thermometers are not very accurate. After boiling the jelly mixture for a while, lower the bulb into the mix and read the results. When the jelly mixture temperature is 8 degrees above the boiling water
temperature, the jelly is done.


Making Juice for Jelly

Date: May 1989 (Revised April 1995)

Source: University of Wisconsin

If you make jelly without commercial pectin, about 1/4 of the fruit should be slightly underripe.

If you use commercial pectin, all fruit should be ripe but still firm. In either case, wash the fruit well in cold water, but do not let it stand in water.

The method of preparing fruit varies. Crush soft fruits or berries. Cut firmer fruits into small pieces. Using the peels and cores adds pectin to the juice during cooking.

Add the amount of water specified for the fruit being cooked. The amount varies from none to one cup per pound of fruits. Bring the fruit and water to a boil and simmer until the fruit is soft. Stir to prevent scorching during cooking. Cooking may be five to ten minutes for soft fruits and 15 to 20 minutes for firm fruits.

When the fruit is ready, pour it into a damp jelly bag set in a colander over a large kettle, or simply hung over the kettle. To get absolutely clear jelly, let the juice drip until it stops; then either throw away the pulp or use it to make a fruit butter. You will extract more juice by squeezing the bag, but the juice will not be clear. In this case, after you have gotten out all the juice possible, re-strain it--without further squeezing--through several layers of damp, clean cheesecloth or jelly bag.

If you are not going to make jelly right away, you may can apple or grape juice. Process pints or quarts in a boiling water bath canner for 5 minutes. Or, juices may be put into rigid freezer containers, leaving one and one-half to two inches headspace and frozen for later use.
