  5. Mixing well with a whisk, bring fruit and pectin mixture back up to a boil.
  6. Add remaining sugars and whisk continually until it reaches 106°C. (very long time!). To test, drop a small amount of hot liquid onto a stainless steel table top and if it peels off it is done.
  7. Pour onto plastic wrapped lined ½ sheets, let cool slightly and cover with plastic wrap directly on top to avoid a crust.

  9. After completely cool, unmold plexy molds or cut sheets into desired shapes, taking care to coat in granulated sugar immediately after unmolding or cutting.
  10. Leave jellies to dry at room temperature uncovered for about a day. Some flavors may need to be tossed in more granulated sugar after sitting for a day.
  11. Place in an air tight container and store at room temperature.
