I told her I'd post my recipe so that it would be easy to find... and here it is:
3 cups wine (one 750 ml bottle - can be red or white, dry or sweet)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 (2 ounce) package dry pectin
4 cups white sugar
- Combine wine, lemon juice, and pectin in a large saucepot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to a rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam off top, if necessary.
- Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Tighten 2 piece lids. Process for 5 minutes in boiling water bath.
I have a friend who buys wine glasses on clearance and fills them with wine jelly - sealing them with paraffin wax instead of using typical jam jars - either way, this makes a fabulous hostess gift, luxurious snack or even a great way to make your appetizers extra yummy!
Have you made Wine Jelly before? Have you bought some? How did you use it?
