Cherry Almond Jelly

If you like maraschino cherries, you'll love this super easy recipe.


  • 3 1/2 cups cherry juice (Cherry Juicy Juice works fine)
  • 4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 box pectin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (I used a little extra )


  1. Bring 1 cup cherry juice, vanilla and almond extract to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.
  2. Add remaining juice and pectin and return to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.
  3. Add sugar and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes.
  4. Pour up in jars, seal, and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

Yield: 5 cups

Am going to plant cherry trees so I'll have my own juice, but until then . . .
