Sand Plum Jelly

There is nothing like homemade jelly. It's not just the taste, it's the process. I like knowing that I'm making something that my great grandmother, grandmother, and mother made. I do a lot of cooking, but there's just something about jelly, the boiling pots of juice the fruit jars and lids...I just don't know what it is about jelly.

Here are the fruits of my labor. I don't do anything fancy, I just use SureJell. I have tried other ways but SureJell is my favorite.

Thanks for your comment...Kayla is starting to feel somewhat better, now that we got a dx (strep throat) and she's on antibiotics!
