This is a good simple apple jelly recipe that set up very nicely. However I was a little disappointed because you'd never know there was cranberry juice in it. The taste and color totally disappeared. To bad, I was really looking forward to something a little bit different. My cider was on the weaker side so I added a little cinnamon and a touch of brown sugar (along with a couple tbsps of rum, couldn't help myself!) Thanks Maryland Jim!
My first jelly & it came out perfect! I like the "blush" color from the cranberry!
