Yesterday I canned 51 jars of cherry jelly, half-pints and quarter-pints. The jars had been sitting out on the counter for about a month, and it's such a relief to have my counter back.
I used cherry juice concentrate I bought from Leelanau Fruit a few years ago. The stuff will keep in the freezer practically forever! To get the four cups of juice the recipe called for, I used 1/2 cup concentrate and 3 1/2 cups water.
I would have canned more if I hadn't run out of pectin. Perhaps I'll do another round in January, as I still have cherry juice concentrate left to use up.
