To Wax or Not to Wax? Homemade Jelly

Scirocco | | Nov 1, 2009 11:02 AM

I searched this board for info on this, but couldn't find any.

I have a glut of cider so was going to make some cider jelly which is so easy and I love it. BUT, I haven't made it in probably 10 years or more. I used to seal the jelly with a thin layer of wax and then screw on the metal tops; but am wondering if wax is still used for sealing homemade jams and jellies or if it is no longer necessary?? I don't recall seeing the wax layer on homemade jams I've gotten recently.

If it's not necessary, what is the current process to seal the jelly?

Thanks!
