To Remove Paraffin From Jelly

When making jelly, always place a narrow strip of wax paper on top of the jelly, leaving the ends extending over the edge of the glass, before pouring the paraffin.  Then, when ready to use jelly, you can lift the paraffin off in a whole cake. – Mrs. Rivers, S.C.

Aid in Making Pie Crust
