So I need a good grape jelly recipe. I want to make some homemade because it is so much better. I don't grow grapes - so what kind should I use?

When I need grape jelly and don't have grapes- I go for cheap and easy- and that is a frozen concentrate from our Aldi, right at $1. Reconstitute and make according to pectin directions, just as you would pressed grape juice.

Just make sure to boil (the 2nd time) until it passes the spoon test. (Coats and drips slow.)

Happy jelling! :)
