NotesGrowing up home canned jams & jellies was an every year thing. Mostly we use fresh fruits, or peppers. But grapes were not growen on Grand daddy's farm. We'd buy the juice & do it that way. So here you go, it is as good as with fresh grapes.
Any kind of juice can be turned into jelly, even "mater" juice.
