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

Ingredients

  • 4 cups apple juice
  • 1/2 cup red-hot candies
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 4-1/2 cups sugar

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the apple juice, candies and pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from the heat; skim off any foam and discard any undissolved candies. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles, wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: about 6 half-pints.
Editor's Note: The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.

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.
