1. In a 6-8 quart pot, combine apple juice, candies and pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil.

2. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, the jelly will quickly boil over if not stirred - be very careful during this process.

Remove from the heat; skim off any foam and undissolved candies. Pour liquid into clean, sanitized hot jars leaving 1/4" air space.

4.  Wipe jar tops clean, put on clean new lids and firmly tighten down screw caps. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water bath at sea-level - adjust according to altitude.

Step 3: Eat and Enjoy
