Hi, I went through your recipe and found that you added to the list of ingredients “5 cups of sugar”, twice. was that a mistake? On the preperation part you do not specify when to use each 5 cups of sugar. You just say to ‘add all the sugar’. So does this recipe call for five or ten cups of sugar?

Jesus is Lord!


    Alma..thanks for pointing that out. I made the corrections just now. It is only 5 cups of sugar and you add it all during step 4. Take care and enjoy


How long do you process jelly jars?


    You need to process it for at least 10 minutes in the water bath. You may need to add more time if you live in a higher altitude location above sea level. I will add it to the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know how your batch turns out.
