Christmas Candy Apple Jelly~Blog Spot Light

My friend~Mrs. M at Frugal Home Living posted this recipe and I have been just waiting for a day to make it. This is taken from her site. You can visit her wonderful site~such great recipes and a love for God too! Visit her here. I have to say this was so easy and it tastes really good. It also makes your house smell like Apple Cinnamon which is my favorite fragrance. You just have to try this. Mrs. M has detailed instructions!

Candy Apple Christmas Jelly

4 c. apple juice
1/2 c. red hot candies
1 (1-3/4-oz.) pkg. powdered pectin
4-1/2 c. sugar

In a heavy saucepan combine apple juice, red hots and pectin. Stir until pectin is dissolved. Heat over high heat until candies are melted and mixture comes to a full boil. Stir consistently. Once mixture comes to a boil, add in sugar. continue to stir and bring to a boil. Let boil for 2 full minutes.

Remove from heat and skim any foam. If there have been any candy pieces that did not melt completely, remove them at this time. Ladle hot jelly into hot sterile half-pint jelly jars, leaving a 1/4" headspace. Wipe rims clean of any spillage. Top each jar with seal and band. Tighten to fingertip tight. Place filled jars into water bath canner and bring to a full rolling boil. Allow to process for 5 minutes after it comes to a boil. Once time has elapsed, remove from canner and allow to cool. Listen for the "ping" sound to ensure that jars have sealed properly. Jelly will be liquid in consistency until it cools completely and sets up.

Hi friend...
Thank you thank you thank you for the book...I'm loving it!! I get in bed where it's so quiet and have really been enjoying it. You are too kind!
Well, I'm going to venture that you have probably made the Candy Apple Jelly and have it packaged adorably...Please tell me it's easy! I really want to try!
I know you are on the countdown to your Boston (and parents...:0) Hoping you are not stressing trying to get everything done.

I have to ditto "MyJourneyBack"'s comment about a blog tutorial - what a great layout you've got!! OK, the thought of canning anything kind of freaks me out because I've never done it. Will you come to St. Louis and let's make some of that jelly together?? LOL That would be such a fun little gift ~ thanks for posting that (and visiting!!). ♥
