Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Crush black raspberries in a bowl. Pour berries into a sieve or cheesecloth over another bowl; let hang and drip into the bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure 3 cups juice and pour into a large pot.

  • Stir lemon juice into the juice in the pot. Stir in sugar. Bring mixture to a full, rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin quickly. Return to a full boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam from mixture using a metal spoon.

  • Inspect canning jars for cracks and rings for rust, discarding any defective ones. Immerse in simmering water. Wash new, unused lids and rings in warm soapy water.

  • Ladle jelly mixture quickly into hot, sterilized jars, filling within 1/8-inch from tops. Run a clean knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars to remove any air bubbles. Wipe rims with a moist paper towel to remove any residue. Top with lids and screw rings on tightly.

  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars 2 inches apart into the boiling water using a holder. Pour in more boiling water to cover jars by at least 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil, cover, and process for 5 minutes.

  • Remove the jars from the stockpot and let rest, several inches apart, for 24 hours. Press the center of each lid with a finger to ensure the lid does not move up or down. Remove the rings for storage and store in a cool, dark area up to 1 year. Refrigerate opened jellies for up to 3 weeks.

Cook's Note:

If necessary, add up to 1/2 cup water to berry juice to get exactly 3 cups.
