Bring the taste of the fair into your home with this easy and delish jelly. Great on buttered toast or add a little sweet and spice to your morning pancakes.
In large saucepan or pot stir in pectin and red hots with apple juice. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until red hots are dissolved. When liquid comes to a rolling boil that can’t be stirred down, boil for one minute.
Stir in sugar and keep stirring until mixture comes to a rapid boil. When liquid comes to a rapid boil that can’t be stirred down, boil another full minute.
Remove from heat and skim off any foam.
Pour into hot jars leaving 1/4″ headspace. Hand tighten lids and process in a water bath for 5 minutes. This recipe will make about 8 half pint jars of beautiful red jelly.
*Note: You can chop up the red hot candies prior to stirring in the liquid in a food processor to assist with them dissolving.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
