Red Wine Jelly Taste Test

We had some red wine jelly left over in the 'fridge, so we spread it on some tea biscuits. It was quite good. The jelly has a strong aroma, but the biscuits sort of toned it down.

For once, the natural lighting was excellent. I think the snow reflecting the light helped a lot. I think I'm finally getting a feel for how to take decent photos with our camera.

Red Wine Jelly
Yields about 3-4 half-pints
2 cups red wine
3 cups sugar
1 pouch liquid pectin (3-oz. pouch)

Combine wine and sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan (3-qt. or larger). Stir to dissolve sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring continuously. Stir in pectin and boil for 1 min. Remove from heat. Skim foam, if necessary. Pour into glass canning jars and either: 1) let cool, then store in refrigerator, or 2) process 10 min. using boiling water method.
