Mogan David Wine Jelly Recipe

Mogan David Wine Jelly

Colleen Sowa


My Great Grandmother Charlotte Andrews Kennedy use to love Mogan David Wine, so she thought making it into a jelly would be a special treat... Here is her receipt as she would say...
(modernized a bit)

So good on a slice of any kind of toast!

This is an unusual jelly that can be used in many ways.

It is a must for holiday breakfasts and brunches (put softened cream cheese on a plate and pour jelly on top and serve with crackers), top vanilla ice cream with a spoon of this...mmmm, A glaze for ham or ribs is great too...

I hope you will enjoy this old receipt...
