    Hello Stockton and welcome to the forum.  Certo was a gelatin used in baking. A picture would help date it but I am going to guess circa. 1930's.  Hope this helps,  Kelley

    Certo is a fruit pectin used to make jelly and jam.
    It helps the jelly solidify into its jelly texture.

    I don't know about that, Kelley.
     
    I know how to make homemade jelly, though.
     
    Last year we made over 300 jars of jelly and jam.

    Most of the certo bottles I find are from 1940-1950's dumps.
     
    That should give you a timeline for when the bottle was made.

    Hey Woody, is Certo still made today? Or has something else replaced it in the homemade jelly and jam industry?

    It is still the top brand if you put any jellies and such up.

    Hey Woody, Sure Jell is ok for some things but it tends to leave jellies and preserves a little to watery for my taste.

    The certo jars are real common almost anywhere you go.  They are neat looking though.  I've noticed that there are oodles of color variations.  I have a small shelf of them that I keep for the neat color.  They go in a smooth progression from light yellow all the way to dark brown, with everything inbetween.  Too bad people don't collect them, but there's so many out there you'd never get much for them even if people did take them...

    When I was a Kid, I would go with my Mother when the berries were ripe, and we would pick Rasberries Blackberries, and Dewberries. My Mother would always can them or make jellies or pies. She could really make them good too! I remember one year, a neighbor gave her all the grapes that she wanted to pick. She made Grape Jelly, and put up quite a few quarts of Grape Juice as well. And to my surprise some time later as I retreived a quart of grape juice, I found that it had fermented and turned to wine. Well, that summer me and my friends did a lot of camping out, and needless to say, we took care of all that faulty grape juice. My Mother was amazed how out of the blue all that grape juice was used up! I told her about it years later, and we both had a good laugh about it. Thanks for making me think of some of the good old days Spencer!

    I always wondered what those bottles were. Now I know. Glad I didn't buy any.

    Brains,
    I was thinking that too...after my post I went to my collection and looked, and I do have a green one as well - well, it appears to be like a certo...it has the 1/2 cup arrows and line, but not an indented "label area" like the certos.  Wonder if it was a "wannabe" certo.  Interesting.
