Concord Grape Jam

Concord Grape Jam recipe

Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  2. Slip skins from grapes. Finely chop or grind skins; set aside.
  3. Mix grape pulp and water in saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Press through sieve to remove seeds.
  5. Combine skins and pulp. Measure exactly 6 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepan.
  6. Stir in pectin. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  7. Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 minutes.
  8. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely.
  9. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)
