We make our own wine and had just a bit that we could not age. So I made Zinfan-Jelly and Coq Au Vin...this is the recipe for Zinfan-jelly. The photo was taken a bit too soon - before the jelly had set!
- 3 1/2 c
- any wine
- 1/4 c
- lemon juice
- 1 pkg
- sure jell pectin powder
- 4 1/2 c
1Combine 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.
2Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Tighten 2 piece lids. Process for 5 minutes in boiling water bath.
3Serve over, cream cheese, cheddar cheese. Can be spread directly on crackers or toast!!
