SAVE SUGAR IN JELLY MAKING
The old idea has prevailed for years
that you must use a cup of sugar to
a cup of juice in all tart fruits for
making jelly. It has been proven by
the Extension Department at Wash
ington, D. C., that three-fourth cup
of sugar to one cup of juice is suffi
cient for any juice. Since the high
cost of sugar is such an important
item in our canning we must be more
economical in the use of it. By ex
perimenting I have found that jellies
such as choke cherry, currant, goose
berry and crab apple will jell beau
tifully by using one-half cup sugar to
one cup of juice. The flavor is just
as good and is plenty sweet. Try it.
