Reviews for Winter Apple Jelly
"So easy to make with my 10 year old daughter and tastes great! I used the food coloring to make it look great."
"My son helped me make this jelly for holiday gifts and it turned out perfectly. We didn't use the red food coloring. It tastes just like apple cider. Delicious! I will definitely make this again."
