This is SO good and SO easy! If you like apple jelly, this is a nice twist on the "usual" apple jelly. The red-hots cinnamon candies give it a little extra flavor boost that you will surely love! Also, this is about the PRETTIEST jelly I have ever made - a beautiful, brilliant red color!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 4 c
    apple juice
  • 1/2 c
    red-hot candies
  • 1 pkg
    powdered fruit pectin (1 3/4 oz pkg)
  • 4 1/2 c
    sugar

How to Make Candy Apple Jelly

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large kettle or Dutch oven, combine apple juice, candies and pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat; skim off foam and any undissolved candies (all of the candies normally dissolve). Pour hot liquid into hot canning jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust caps. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath.
    (Note: Use only jars made for canning in the boiling water bath. Regular jars from store-bought items might break. The one I used that previously had store-bought jelly in it (one with black lid), I didn't process ... it was just my "sample" jar to go straight into the fridge.)

    Yield: about 6 half-pints
