Soda Pop Jelly

       My Grandmothers jelly from her 1935 Searchlight cookbook. 3/4 cup carbonated beverage(cola or root beer is best)
       3 cups sugar
       3/4 cup water
       1/2 bottle liquid fruit pectin

       combine sugar, beverage, and water. Mix. Heat rapidly to boiling. Add pectin at once. Stir constantly before and  boiling. Heat to a full rolling boil. Boil hard 1/2 min. Remove from fire and skim. Pour into jars and seal in BWB.

       This is a neat jelly that kids like. You might adjust the amount of soda pop and water to suit your own taste.
