|Muscadine Hull Jelly|
|Joe Wheeler EMC|
|5 pounds muscadines (black or bronze)
6 cups sugar
1 box Sure Jell
|Prepare jars and flats before starting jelly. Keep both in hot water. Wash muscadines. Cut muscadines in half and remove hulls. Cut up hulls. Place hulls in a pan and just cover with water. Cook on medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes. If water gets low, add more. When tender, remove from heat and set aside. Place pulp in pan and cover with water. Cook about 15 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and press through sieve to remove seeds. Mix hull mixture and seedless pulp mixture together. You will need 6 cups of this.
Place in large pan and add Sure Jell. Mix well and bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Add sugar, mix well and return to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off foam. Pour into hot jars to ¼ inch from the top. Wipe jar top and cover tightly with lid. Place in water bath for 10 minutes. Remove jars and place on towel-covered counter to cool. When cool, press on top of lid to check if it’s sealed. If it’s sealed, it won’t spring back. Refrigerate unsealed jars. Yield 5-6 pints, or 10-12 half-pints.

|My husband Tom and I love muscadines! Tom, a farmer, enjoys the growing process. What started as a two-row hobby has now grown into a 220-vine, you-pick operation. He also enjoys sharing the knowledge he has gained over the years with others. My pleasure comes from eating the muscadines, especially the black varieties. I also enjoy visiting with customers! Many have been coming for years and it is like seeing old friends. I am always happy to share jelly recipes. Muscadine Hull Jelly is Tom’s favorite.|
