With a hint of apple and cinnamon, this jelly spreads cheer from breads to bagels to muffins. Its rosy pink color looks lovely blushing through the food jars I save and decorate with fabric-covered lids. —Betsy Porter, Bismarck, North Dakota

"Just made this. Doesn't get any easier!! Looks like it's setting up well! Taste like apple cider. Can't wait to taste it on a hot buttered biscuit!??I used Martinelli's gold medal apple juice (100% pure. No additives)."

"This was my first attempt at making jelly & this is the greatest jelly ever! My family loves it. It has a flavor all of it's own. Not too spicy or sweet. Making jelly couldn't get any easier & looks so pretty in the jars. This is a great gift if you want to cheer someone up. This is a keeper."
