Making Tart Cherry Jelly

We are often asked about whether you can make tart cherry jelly of your own using our Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate. Norma I. was kind enough to email Betsy with an answer.


I had promised you info regarding using your tart cherry juice concentrate in making cherry jelly.

I used 1 1/2 cups concentrate with 3 1/2 cups water to reconstitute the concentrate for juice for jelly. I always follow the recipe in the liquid CERTO box. I did the same as I always have when using the IQF cherries in the past (having had to heat, mash, and strain them for juice) with splendid results.

Now you will have an answer for future customers regarding using your concentrate for jelly-making. (This particular recipe did not require all the juice I had reconstituted as the recipe calls for 3 1/2 cups juice.)

I will be ordering more of your concentrate in the future.

Thanks, Norma!
