Guest Post: Crystal from Mrs. Happy Homemaker

 

Hi there!  I'm Crystal from MrsHappyHomemaker.com & I want to share with you all my family's very favorite jelly recipe.  It will blow all other jelly's you've ever tried out of the water.  But, the best thing about this recipe is how easy it is. So many times do jelly & jam recipes intimidate us, but NOT this one! Easy-peasy! For this recipe, you won't need many ingredients.  Just 6 cups of fresh blueberries, 3 cups of sugar, & 2 (3oz) packets of lemon jello.  (Or Wal-Mart jello if you are cheap...I mean frugal...like me!)  Throw 2 cups of the blueberries into a food processor or blender, and process until smooth.  Put your 2 cups of blueberry puree & remaining 4 cups of whole blueberries into a large pan or saucepan.
 

 
Stir in 3 cups of sugar & bring to a boil over medium high heat. 
 
Remove from the heat & mix in 2 (3oz) boxes of lemon gelatin (jello). 

  Make sure it is combined well so that the gelatin dissolves properly.  

Now, transfer to clean sterile canning jars - leaving 1 inch of head space at the top, & seal in a 2 inch water bath!
