Joy in Jelly

Who doesn't love homemade jelly? You would probably be hard pressed to find someone who would say they don't care for it. And what girl doesn't find delight in making something with her own hands? This afternoon I decided to get in the kitchen and go for it!

First find the fruit! 


Next get some juice, LOTS of sugar, a package of Sure Jell, and 
some cute little jelly jars.
Follow the directions on the box.


And WAALAA!!
You have yourself some homemade, really good jelly.
Mine is yummy plum!

Now I just need some good old biscuits or rolls!

Happy Birthday (July 29), Jerry!

  2. I love to make jelly and/or jam, but I have never made plum. It looks yummy! My daughter's favorite jam is strawberry, so I made lots of that in the spring. Yes, you need to try your jam out on some delicious biscuits now! Love & blessings from NC!

  6. Your jelly looks very good! I used to make strawberry jam with my mom every year. We had a lot of fun, even though it was a lot of work. I told my husband we need to make some next year. I still have all my canning jars! I hope you enjoy your plum jelly.
