Cranberry Jelly

 Categories: Spreads, Diabetic, Low-fat/cal
      Yield: 1 servings

      2 c  Cranberries                         3 oz Liquid pectin (regular)
      1 c  Concentrated apple juice            5 tb Glycerine
    1/4 c  Lemon juice                         1 tb Unfl.gelatin or 2 tb.freezer

  Wash and pick over cranberries, discarding any that are soft.  Place
  in a deep saucepan and add fruit juices.  Cover and simmer for about
  20 minutes, until fruit is soft.  Mash to break up any berries left
  whole.
 
  Strain in food mill to remove seeds.  Return to saucepan and heat to
  boiling.  Add pectin, glycerine and gelatin, stirring well.  Boil for
  1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Skim and pour into hot, sterile pint
  jars, leaving 1/2 inch at top.  Cap with hot sterile lids.  Process
  in boiling water bath for 5 minutes after water returns to boiling.
  If any jars fail to seal, refrigerate and use within 10 days or
  freeze for later use. Makes 3 1/2 cups.
 
  VARIATION:  You can substitute 1/2 cup low-methoxy pectin solution
  and 2 1/2 tsp calcium solution for the liquid pectin and glycerine,
  but add calcium after removing from heat.  If you plan to freeze the
  jelly, be sure to use the full amount of gelatin.
