Fruit Jellies

Cooking-oil spray
1 1/3 cups citrus juice (pasteurized orange or pink grapefruit; or fresh blood orange, lime, or lemon), strained
3 cups granulated sugar
6 ounces liquid pectin, such as Certo (you'll need two 3-oz. packs)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Coarse sugar or use granulated

1. Line an 8-in. square baking pan with microwave-safe plastic wrap, pressing it up sides and leaving a 1-in. overhang. Spray plastic wrap with cooking spray.
2. Pour citrus juice and granulated sugar into a 6-qt. pot and stir to combine. Clip a candy thermometer to inside of pan.
3. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly and slowly, until mixture registers 238° (just before the soft-ball stage, when it will harden), about 20 minutes. Add pectin and cook 1 minute more, stirring constantly.
4. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, and immediately pour into prepared pan. Let set until cool and firm, about 1 1/2 hours.
5. Lift from pan using plastic wrap and cut into 1-in. squares, circles, 3/4- by 1 1/4-in. rectangles, or 3/4- by 2-in. half-moons. Dip in coarse sugar.
