*The easiest way to can is this - wash and dry canning jars thoroughly. Place lids and rings in a pot of barely simmering water. Once jelly is ready, fill a jar, leaving about a 1/4" headspace. With tongs, remove lid and ring from water, place on jar, and tighten, although not too tight. Turn jar upside down on a dishtowel. Repeat with remaining jars. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Turn upright and allow to seal. Tighten rings on all jars. If any of the jars don't seal, simply store in the refrigerator once cool. The other jars can be stored in a pantry for 8 months to a year, if it lasts that long. (Thanks to Home by 28 Cooks for the above already typed directions.)
This is the process I use for all my canning unless a water bath is required.
