Wine Jelly Recipe


I used a red wine here!

4 c. sugar
1 box Sure-Jell
3/4 c. water
3 c. wine
Use champagne, pink champagne(my favorite), rose wine or Sangria or any wine with 10-14% alcohol. Local wines add a bit of local flavor!  Buy Local is my mantra!To make jelly, measure sugar and set aside. Mix fruit pectin (Sure-Jell) and water in a 6 or 8 quart saucepot. Bring to full rolling boil over high heat and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.Reduce heat to medium and immediately add wine and all sugar. Cook until all sugar is dissolved, 4-6 minutes. Remove from heat and remove foam with spoon.Ladle quickly into hot, sterilized jars. Fill to 1/8 inch of top. Wipe jar rims and threads. Seal with bands and lids. Water bath process for 10 minutes. Makes 6 small jars!
