Colleen's notes for this recipe:
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...
Make it Your Way...

Good on toast, crackers. Try it on a cracker with cream is heaven! Makes an unusual topping for vanilla ice cream...

Is the gelatin really needed?
user Colleen Sowa colleenlucky7 - Sep 27, 2010
Hi Lee! Actually, The gelatin is just a security blanket.... I made it with and without... so if you want to omit it, that is fine.
