Mom and I put away 26.5 cups (33 jars) of Wild Plum Jelly today. From the tastes we had as we went along, its going to be great - a perfect combination of sweet and tart. These will make great gifts, and will last us for a while. We did the jelly in 3 batches and it took us 3 hours to cook, can and process, plus a trip to the store for more jars and Sure-jell. Thankfully I got a BIG stockpot from my parents as a shower gift - I am looking forward to doing more canning but need to get a jar funnel, jar tongs, and a rack before I can do it on my own.
