Sour Cherry Jelly

Ever since I returned to work outside the home I've not had the time to make some of the things I used to enjoy so much. One of those things is making homemade jelly. The best jelly I've ever had in my life is jelly I've made myself but the last batch was probably 2 1/2 years ago. Looking over jelly recipes this morning I found myself glancing at "sour cherry jelly" a few times. I decided to add it to my collection of recipes in the hope I can make it soon!

Sour Cherry Jelly

3 pounds red sour cherries
1/2 c water
7 c sugar
6 oz. pectin

Wash, stem and crush the fruit. Add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10-12 minutes. Extract the juice with a jelly bag. Combine 3 cups of juice with the sugar. Heat until dissolved. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Add pectin. Stir and remove scum from top. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Makes about 7 8-oz. glasses of jelly.
