"This was relaly good...and really easy! I didn't have any unmelted candies to contend with. I was so proud of it, I took it to work with some fresh baked bread and it was a huge hit! Eveyrone loved the unique cinnamon flavor. Great recipe!"
"Really easy to make. I had no candies left over and little foam. Wonderful color and taste. Can't wait to share with friends and family"
"This was wonderful! Can't wait to make it again. Very easy to make, and was a big hit. "
"Great recipe. I could just eat this with a spoon right out of the jar!"
"Just a note: if only processing for five minutes the jars should be sterilized before filling. If processing for ten minutes or longer, they only need to be very clean, as the processing time will sterilize them."
"The taste of this is really differant and good if you like cinnamon and we do! My only problem is it hasn't gotten to the texture of jelly so may have to try somethng to firm it up. Love the color it looks so pretty."
"I love this recipe! It is so simple and so tasty! I have made two batches so far - I got 6 half pint jars and 1 quarter pint jar out of the first batch and decided it was good enough to do pints with so I got 3 pint jars and 1 quarter pint jar out of the second batch. My candies melted completely both times and the jelly set up perfectly both times as well. It is a beautiful pink color as well - I will be giving this away as gifts as well as keeping some for myself! Thanks for sharing!!"
"Packaged this jelly in small jars, added a bow and a tag to the top and passed them out as Christmas gifts for the neighbors, mailman, and friends. Great reviews all around and the main comment was that it tasted exactly like a candy apple. The only thing I would have changed would be to maybe add a drop or two of red food coloring to pump up the color a bit as I did make it for Christmas gifts. Otherwise, just leave as is for a very pretty & tasty treat!"
"Five stars is not enough!!! Fantastic flavor and soooooooo easy!!!!!!! I just made one pint plus a little extra to see how it tastes. The red hot flavor is very mild so if you really want your jelly to have that red hot taste you should had a lot more. But again, this recipe is amazing and you should really try it.
P.S. I ground the candies like another reviewer said and that worked very well. No unmelted candy pieces what so ever."
"Jelly from store bought apple juice! I can't believe that store bought 100% Apple Juice could be made into a wonderful jelly. At first I couldn't find the Red Hots, which is why I couldn't make this recipe sooner. I was told that the best time of the year to find the cinnamon candies/Red Hots is around Valentine's Day. I was in the Dollar Tree store and found a 7 ounce bag for a dollar. I had 5 cups of apple juice in the refrigerator for a while and used it with 1 1/2 package of dry pectin and the bag of cinnamon candies. The candies measured a little over 1/2 cup but it worked out well with the extra pectin and cup of apple juice. I made 7 pints and a 2 ounce sampler from this recipe. My jelly didn't setup right away, but since my sampler jelled really well I figured that it would take 12-48 hours for my jars to completely set. I did the 5-10 minute hot water bath, which I have started to do when making my jams and jellies as an added precaution for safety. I had coffee and Candy Apple Jelly (from my 2 ounce sampler) on my English muffin for breakfast this morning. I can't wait to try this jelly in my meatball and little smokies recipes. Thanks for posting."
"I tried making this with liquid pectin and it failed. I heated it back up with the powdered pectin added, new lids, reprocessed and it turned out perfect. Great flavor, beautiful color. I was concerned the candies wouldn't melt, but they eventually did completely."
"This jelly is WONDERFUL! It is so easy to make and tastes great. I made it last year after juicing apples from the trees in my yard which was a pain. It was so good that I made more but the next time with apple juice I bought from the store! So much easier and tasted the same. The jelly didn't last long since we ate it like crazy and gave quite a bit away to friends and family. I got back on this site today to get the recipe to make sure I had the right ingredients on my grocery list. My husband and I will be making quite a bit the next few weeks! Thanks for sharing this recipe."
"I made this last Christmas for friends and family and they absolutely loved it! It is so easy to make and very yummy. You won't believe the compliments you'll get from this jelly."
"All I can say is yum!! This was very easy to make and with little mess!! My son was loving the smell, as I was cooking it while he slept. He got woke up to the great cinnamon apple smell!! It made the exact amount it said and tastes great!! Thank you"
"So good and so easy! I got 8 half pints from this which will be given out for Christmas. This was my first time canning *anything* and it was super easy!"
"I couldnt find red-hots anywhere in my city so I used cinnamon hearts instead. I also used a full packet of certo and the jelly came out awesome! My batch only made about 5 or 6 cups so Im making another one tonight."
"This is some seriously tasty jelly! I followed the directions exactly and didn't have a problem. I love cinnamon and this is great on toast or bread. Definitely will be making this again!"
"The taste waas great but I was not happy with the soft gel .."
"This turned out great!! A good recipe to give for the holidays, especially to a household with children."
"My mom made this and gave to my sister and I! Boy were we lucky! It's great cinnamon taste is just what I have been looking for. Definitely will be making more of this this fall!!"
