Top Review by Sweet PQ

I have made this jelly for holiday gifts for years. This is really a nice, basic recipe that takes very well to experimentation. I have used many different kinds of wines. Remember, if you don't like drinking won't like eating it. So, use a good quality wine.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups port wine
  • 12 bottle liquid pectin (6 oz. size)


  1. Heat sugar and Port wine in top of double boiler over rapidly boiling water, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in 1/2 bottle liquid pectin.
  3. Immediately pour jelly into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe rims of jars.
  4. Seal as directed.
