Ingredients
• 3 1/2 pounds cherries
• 1/2 cup water
• 3 1/2 cups cherry juice
• 1 package Mrs. Wages® Fruit Pectin Home Jell®
• 4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Instructions
1. Discard damaged fruit. Remove stems, wash and crush the fruit
    without removing the pits. Place in a large saucepan, add 1/2 cup of
    water, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes
    or until the cherries are soft.

2. Place in a jelly bag and extract the juice. Juice yield should be about 3
    1/2 cups.

3. Place measured juice or prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepan.
    Stir in Mrs. Wages® Fruit Pectin Home Jell® and bottled lemon juice,
    if listed.

4. When mixture comes to a full boil, quickly stir in premeasured sugar
    amount. Stirring constantly, return to a full boil (a boil that cannot be
    stirred down) and boil for 1 minute. Do not overcook pectin as it may
    break down and prevent gelling. Mrs. Wages® Fruit Pectin Home Jell®
    requires sugar. Sugar is necessary not only for flavor, it preserves and
    aids in gelling. It is not recommended varying from recipe.

5. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Quickly ladle into hot jars.
    Leave 1/4-inch headspace at the top. Use a clean damp cloth to wipe
    any spilled jam or jelly from rims and threads of jars. Cover with hot
     lids and tighten rings firmly.

6. Set hot jars on rack in canner or large saucepan of boiling water.
    Water must cover jars by 1 or 2 inches. Cover canner and return to
    boiling. Boil for 5 minutes (begin timer when water has returned to a
    boil).

7. Remove canner from heat, remove lid and let jars sit 5 minutes in
    canner. Remove jars from canner, set on a clean towel or rack to
    cool.
