Apple Strawberry Jelly
fruit pectin, liquid
liquid, one pouch
Pour apple juice into a preserving kettle or large saucepan. Thoroughly crush the barries, using a potato masher, one layer at a time; measure ½ cup prepared berries; add to apple juice; add sugar.
Place pan over high heat; bring to boil, stirring continuously; at once, stir in liquid fruit pectin; bring to a full rolling boil; boil hard for 1 minutes, stirring continuously; remove kettle from heat. Skim off foam with a metal spoon; pour quickly into hot sterilized jars, leaving ½ inch head space; seal with melted paraffin wax; cover with clean lids. Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
NOTE Bottled Strawberry cocktail can be substituted for the fresh strawberry juice, giving a slightly sweeter product. Makes 3½ cups.
