Colleen's Story

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...

Hi Colleen,
Sorry not to have seen your post sooner but wonder if we might have family in common. I am going to try this jelly thanks for answering my question and wondering how many jars do you usually make from the one batch, I'm thinking of using the quilted smaller jars.
