Red Hot Apple Jelly
I have had an interest in canning these last few weeks and found this recipe in my file box. It has simple, fairly easy to find ingredients and quick and easy to make. It will have your whole house smelling like the holidays.
4 c. apple juice
1 package powdered pectin
4 c. granulated sugar
¼ c. red hot cinnamon candies
Combine apple juice and pectin in a large microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or wax paper
and set in the microwave. Bring to a boil on HIGH setting for about 12 to 14 minutes. Stir twice. Remove
from microwave; add sugar and cinnamon candies, stirring well. Return to microwave: cook until
mixture returns to a rolling boil, about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Boil hard 1 minute.
Remove from oven. Skim foam if necessary. Pour hot into hot, sterilized jars, leaving ¼ inch head
space. Cap and seal. Process 5 minutes in boiling water canner.
Yield: 6 half pints.
