Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 12 lbs fully ripe gooseberries, to make 5 1/2 cups gooseberry juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (1 3/4 ounce) box pectin (Sure-Jell)
  • 12 teaspoon butter or 12 teaspoon margarine
  • 7 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl

Directions

  1. Crush gooseberries thoroughly, one layer at a time, or grind them. Place in saucepan; add water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minute.
  2. Place three layers of damp cheesecloth or a jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared fruit into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently.
  3. Measure exactly 5-1/2 cups juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.
  4. Stire pectin into juice in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming.

  6. Stir in sugar.
  7. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly.
  8. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  9. Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops.
