Description

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.

Ingredients

  • 1-¾ ounce, weight Powdered Fruit Pectin
  • ½ cups Red Hot Candies
  • 4-½ cups Apple Juice (no Sugar Added)
  • 4-½ cups Sugar
  • 8 jars Half-pint Canning Jars, Lids And Rings

Preparation

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.

Hi Rachel, no, I would use the amount of sugar the recipe calls for. You would risk the jelly not setting up properly if you reduce the amount. Thanks!

Could i get away with only adding half the sugar?

Hi Rachel, I would just use apple juice. If you used apple cider, especially the kind with lots of cinnamon, pulp, and spice, your jelly would be cloudy and wouldn’t be as pretty to look at ;)
