 4-H Club Canning Project 5
UNIT VI-—.lELLIES, JAMS AND MARMALADES ji
_ By Dorothy Gentry and Edith Lacyi i , _
FRUIT SWEETS, such as jams, jellies, preserves, marmalades, conserves, lll __
and bntters serve various purposes in the menu. They can be used to _ t ·
akf lll tempt the appetite, give zest to bland foods, change left-over desserts, or _ . I
K€€pa supply the dessert for an emergency meal. As they contain much sugar “‘  
they are an excellent source of energy and should be used as part of the ._ .
sugar allowance for the day. _ j
WHAT TO DO IN UNIT VI U if U .
_ l. Make 20 jars or glasses of jam, jel_ly, preserves, or marmalade, in-
' l-110) cluding at least 4· varieties.  
2. Label each jar or glass. Use regular club labels for county, district, ,
and state exhibits. For home storage use homemade labels, giving V
name of product and date when made. l
3. Can at least 35 quarts of fruits, vegetables, and meats and 5 pints of `
pickles or relish as a review of methods learned in other units.
glam) 3[ 4. Give a demonstration on making jelly, jam, preserves or marmalade.
5. Exhibit your products at community and county fairs, if held. I V
6. Keep a complete record in the 4-H Canning Record Book.
JELLY A .
lelly is made by combining fruit juice and sugar in the right pro- I
portions and cooking until the mixture will jell when cooled. It should · ( .
· be clear, sparkling, and free from sediment or crystals, with the natural
famlll Calor and flavor of the fresh fruit. When turned from the glass it should
m (100 hold its shape and quiver. When cut, the edges should be sharp and the
V jelly should not cling to the knife. · i
wk' Selecting Fruit » A
I`€°ll°m' For jelly, select some slightly underripe and some well ripened fruit. _
Bcordjn , This assures both a supply of pectin and a good flavor t0 the jelly.
Pectin. a natural substance of green fruits, undergoes a chemical change
as the fruit ripens and sugar is formed; therefore the fruit for supplying
pectin should be selected before this stage is reached. On the other hand ·
some well-ripened fruit will give a delicious flavor and depth of color

2 or 3 quarts of fruit. Cut the less juicy fruits into small pieces, leaving P1€€€5 `
skins, seeds, and cores. Put into a kettle and cover with water and a lid.
Bring the mixture slowly to boiling and cook until tender. Cook sob

To make a second extraction cover the fruit pulp with water, bring to will Y
boiling and drain as before. The juice from the first extraction will make mth Sl
a better quality jelly. However, a satisfactory product can be made by use l‘
mixing the first and second together.
‘ The fruit juice for jelly-making must contain pectin and acid in the
right proportions. Some fruits contain plenty of both while others lack B
one or the other, or both. Some of the common fruits are grouped below slowly

There is, however, some variation in pectin and acid content of tl1€ lmC€'

Filling the Glasses  °
After taking the jelly off the stove, strain and pour it into hot
sterilized glasses. Hold the pan only 1 or 2 inches above the glass when l

to make the jelly cloudy and foggy.
