Jelly Making 101

Lesson 1:
Just buy your jelly from the store.

Lesson 2:
If you decide to ignore lesson 1, make sure you wear OLD clothes and start the process in an already clean kitchen.

Lesson 3:
Don't try the sugar-free pectin. It's nasty and the "jelly" is bland.

Lesson 4:
Wear gloves.

Lesson 5:
Your recipe will multiply. The box of pectin that I used said I'd have enough jelly for 4-8oz. jars. WRONG. I had enough for 20 jars.

Lesson 6:
Don't let your attempt to make jelly be the first time you attempt to can something.

Lesson 7:
Please leave jelly making to the professionals.
