Boozey jelly making

Today's challenge - can I turn all these bottles of adult beverages into jelly?

Grown up jelly making

I scored 35 half-pint jars at the thrift store this week.  I have a couple dozen pint jars too.  I may have to make a sugar run.

Alcohol jelly
  • 3 1/2 cups wine
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (2 ounce) package dry pectin
  • 4 1/2 cups white sugar
  1. Combine wine, lemon juice, and pectin in a large saucepot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to a rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam off top, if necessary.
  2. Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Tighten 2 piece lids. Process for 5 minutes in boiling water bath.
