Place juice in jelly cloth or bag; squeeze juice. Measure 4 1/2 cups into very large saucepan. Squeeze and strain juice from 2 medium lemons; measure 1/4 cup into the pan. Now make the jelly. Measure sugar; set aside. Mix Sure-Jell into juice. Bring to a hard boil over high heat, stirring constantly. At once, stir in sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard 1 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, skim off foam and pour into glasses. Cover with hot paraffin. Makes about 10 medium glasses.
