Concord grape jelly

It's time for canning!
We have been trying to preserve as much as we can as the season is flying by. 
We made some pesto, canned tomatoes, froze some eggplants and for the second year I have been making grape jelly with our Concord grapes. It is pretty simple but it takes a little time and we have so many grapes. I followed this recipe. I had 20 cups of grape juice, I had to cook them in 2 separate pots...
The first batch ended up to be a little too liquidy. The second batch was just perfect !
I just recommend to try it first with a small batch of  grapes to see how it goes, have the experience, test the amount of sugar and pectin.
