Pyracantha Jelly Recipe

Makes about 4 half-pints

3 cups pyracantha berries
6 cups water
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of medium-size grapefruit
1 package (1¾ ounces) powdered pectin
4½ cups sugar  
Wash and stem berries.  In a pan bring berries and water to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in lemon and grapefruit juice.  Strain--but do not squeeze--through a fine clean cloth or several thicknesses of cheese cloth. You should have 4½ cups of juice. Return juice to pan and stir in pectin.  Place over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a full roiling boil. Add sugar and, stirring constantly, bring to a boil.  Continue to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Skim of foam and pour into hot sterilized jars. Seal at once.
