Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Keeping it Safe
This recipe will yield 5 (1-cup/250-mL) jars of jelly plus a partially filled jar. Refrigerate the partially filled jar immediately and use within 3 weeks.
If necessary, add up to 1/2 cup water to squeezed juice to get the desired 3-cup measure.
The pincherry is a small tree, growing up to 12 metres in height and 25 centimetres in diameter. The fruit of the pincherry is bright red and is 6 to 8 millimetres across, and it ripens from late July to early September. They are edible but very sour, but makes excellent jellly.
The red or black fruit of the wild chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) is a familiar sight—during August and September. The fruit makes great jams or jellies.
How to Accurately Measure the Sugar
To ensure accuracy of the sugar measure when preparing jams or jellies, use a dry measuring cup to measure the sugar, then place all the measured sugar in a separate bowl before adding it to the juice mixture in saucepan.
