Microwave Jelly (small amounts)

Best to microwave only one batch at a time. Since it's such a small amount, simply refrigerate, rather than processing.

Microwave Jelly (small amounts)
by Sharon Anne
Yield: about 1 1/2 (half-pints)

1 Tbsp REGULAR pectin powder
3/4 Tbsp REGULAR ClearJel® powder
1 cup granulated sugar, divided (or Whey Low D granular)
9-ounces grape juice concentrate, thawed & undiluted
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

In a small bowl, mix together the pectin and ClearJel powder with 2-4 Tablespoons of your choice of sweetener and set aside.

Combine the juices in a 3-quart microwave-safe bowl, and then whisk in the remaining sweetener, plus the pectin-powdered mixture. Cover with plastic wrap or waxed paper and bring to a boil in the microwave oven on high setting (about 5 minutes). Remove from microwave and stir.

Bring mixture to a boil on high setting (about 4 minutes). Remove from the oven and stir.

Return the uncovered mixture to the oven and cook until jelly sheets from a spoon (about 1 minute).

Skim foam and ladle into sterilized jars. Adjust 2-part lids. Refrigerate.
