Instructions 

  • In a 2-quart saucepan, mix pectin, water and baking soda; stir until foamy.
  • In a separate 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar and corn syrup.
  • Place both pans over high heat at the same time.
  • Cook both mixtures. stirring constantly, about 4 minutes, until foam in pectin mixture has thinned and sugar mixture is boiling rapidly.
  • Stirring constantly, pour pectin mixture in a slow steady stream into the boiling sugar mixture. Continue boiling one minute longer.
  • Remove from heat, stir in flavoring or extract.
  • Immediately pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan or greased candy molds as I have used.
  • Let stand at room temperature overnight until firm.
  • Turn candy out onto wax paper sprinkled with sugar. Cut candy into ¾ inch squares with a knife dipped into warm water if you used a loaf pan.
  • If you used candy molds turn the candy out and roll in sugar.
  • Allow candy to air dry over night before dipping in chocolate.
  • Dip squares or molded jellies into melted chocolate. Return to wax paper until hardened.
