Orange Jelly

For a change of pace, give this yummy jelly made from frozen orange juice a try. I've given it as gifts to friends and family—and many times the jars have been returned for refills. —Mary Rice, Maysville, Oklahoma

    Question? Can you make this and then place them in glass jars and process in a hot water 10 minute boil bath as you would other jams? Really want to try this recipe, but want to store in the pantry to use later.

    DaughterofHades ~ They just want you to cool them for an hour before putting the lids on them. Letting them set overnight after that allows the jelly to set-up.Sue StetzelOnline Community ManagerTaste of Home Magazine

    When you say cover, do you mean cover with a dish towel and put lids on later? Or put the lids on?

    I tried making this jelly, and it was VERY simple. I also tried turning the bottles upside down after pouring into hot jars and covering. As soon as I righted the jars they popped! I have a good seal, but I'll keep and eye on them! Thanks for the post!

    Why can't you cover the jars immediately,turn them upside down for 5 minutes,uprite them and let them seal? This would allow them to keep much longer.
