    wine jellies

    I have a recipe for tropical fruit jellies, and I was thinking about replacing the tropical fruit concentrate with wine--does anyone have a recipe specifically for wine jellies, or have any input? I'm not sure this will work, but my sister bought me some for my birthday and they were so delicious, I want to make some and give them to my friends.

    If you've never had them, wine jellies are great. Maybe if it works out, I'll post the recipe!

    lipstick kisses,

    you will probably need more sugar than you would with the fruit, since wine has less natural sugar than fruit juices. also, you would need to add pectin, but i am assuming your fruit jelly recipe calls for that. i think there might even be a wine jelly recipe in the Sure-Jell packet insert.

    i would suggest googling "wine jelly recipes", because pectin only works properly if you have the right proportion of sugar going. i can't really ballpark that one, since i've only ever made fruit jams.

    I have a red wine jelly recipe on my computer that I've never tried. It uses gelatin, not pectin. Anyway, I can send it to you if you'd like. I can't post it here because it is copyrighted. (I copy recipes from library cookbooks onto my laptop sometimes.)
