I used Spumante and changed the ratios to 2 cups wine and 3 cups sugar, eliminating the water altogether. The jelly is still "gaggy" sweet with a hint of vinegar aftertaste. There were 4 taste testers in the house at the time. I was the only person that didn't like the taste.
Directions See How It's Made
- Stir wine and sugar together, set aside for 10 minutes.
- Stirring occasionally.
- Stir water and Certo together and then stir into wine mixture. Stir constantly for 3 minutes, then fill jelly jars to within 1/2" of tops.
- Wipe tops of jars and cover with lids.
- Let stand for 24 hours at room temperature, then freeze. Store in refrigerator after opening.
- Use any red, rose or white wine. Or use a cream sherry, white port or marsala.
- Sweet wines make a more flavorful jelly than dry wines do.
- Tip: I have found this works best if you heat the wine and sugar while stirring. I couldn't get the sugar to dissolve until I did. I also filled the jars with hot water while making the jelly so they were warm when I filled them. This seemed to help the lids seal better.
