Reviews for Orange Jelly
"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."
