This was just ok for me I think maybe I used the wrong pectin or something. I would strongly suggest using white cranberry juice too I used walmart brand cranberry juice and its more a brown color and not very nice looking. I might try it again with white cranberry juice and raspberry juice for something different. This was my first jelly though so I may have done something wrong. Read More

I made it the first time exact to the directions didn't care for the overpowering flavor of the cranberries and the pectin should say (1.75oz) instead of (2oz.). Made it the second time reversing the ingredients 2 cups grape juice 3/4 c. cranberry love love loved it! Very pretty in jars too. Read More

What a great recipe! Unlike many jelly and jam recipes this one is flexible. The quantities of each juice can be changed as long as the total amount of juices used adds up to 2 3/4 cups. I've made this recipe three times so far and each batch was a success. Read More
