Homemade Grape Jelly (sugar free)
4 cups (32 oz) grape juice (100% juice please! no sugar added! made from concentrate works just fine)
box of powdered pectin
3/4 - 1 cup honey (I used 3/4, grape juice is pretty sweet already)
1/2 teas. butter

  1. In large saucepan add juice, gradually stir in pectin powder.
  2. Over high heat, bring juice to a rolling boil that cannot be stirred down.
  3. Add honey, and bring to a rolling boil again. (Add 1/2 teas butter to reduce foaming, if desired.)Boil for 1 minute.
  4. Remove from heat, and ladle into hot canning jars.
  5. Place lids on jars.
  6. Put jars in a hot water bath. Bring to a boil and process for 10 minutes.
  7. Turn off heat. Remove cover from canning pot, let jars sit for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove jars from hot water. Let them sit on the countertop until cooled down.
  9. Check that lids are sealed.

Once the jars are cooled down the jelly will solidify more. Don't get nervous if when you take them out of the hot water you see the juice sloshing around the jar. :)
