What is jelly stock? Well, jelly stock is just simply this: it's juice. When you're in the thick of canning season it seems daunting to make jelly on top of everything else. The most important thing is to get your fresh fruits, veggies,
or meat preserved in a timely fashion.
Jelly stock or juice from your fresh fruits is what you can and preserve for a later date, such as winter, when there is a little bit of a lull on the farm and the business of harvest is over. Pull out your quarts of juice, be it grape, peach, apple, pear,
or strawberry etc. and follow your favorite jelly recipe.
JELLY STOCK FOR WINTER
Method of Simplifying Summer Work Followed by Many Housewives
by Anna Coyle
In preparing for the winter's supply of jelly, what could be simpler than extracting the fruit juices during the busy fruit season and storing them in jars?
The juice is called jelly stock. Each jar of stock is neatly labeled, giving such information as the kind of fruit, date prepared, and any facts that may assist in later making the best jelly. Jars of jelly stock are stored with other
canned fruits and used as the demand arises.
