My mother brought this old family recipe with her when she moved here from Scotland. My children and husband especially love spreading this fruitful jelly on slices of homemade bread. —Elaine Soper, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2011

Wow! I made this with no troubles, I read reviews from several sites and decided that I would cook the berry juice extracted about 25 minutes, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. After my gems cooled, I checked to see how they set up and was pleased! Thank you for this fantastic recipe, I will definately make again

I haven't made jelly in years and was wondering if this could be made with a sugar substitute. I have 5 diabetics in my family and it would be nice to be able to make homemade jelly or jams for them
