Very easy to make, turned out well, tasted wonderful. I used a decent quality sparkling wine and the jelly was very flavorful. I've used this jelly with crepes, lamb, scones and on toast. Very versitile. I was confused by the one reviewer who said that the directions were confusing. There was no mention of water in the ingredient list because there is NO water in this recipe. Also, it does say in the directions when to add the sugar.
Turned out wonderful, but there are some mistakes in the directions which I figured out before I started.
Directions say stir in water - no amt. listed on ingredients.
Directions do not say when to add sugar. What it should read is stir in sugar and pectin. Makes a wonderful gift basket item!
This sounds good but does anyone know how this would turn out if you processed the jelly in a water bath canner so that it doesn't have to be refrigerated? Would this ruin the champagne flavor?
I made up three different batches of this jelly and could not get any of them to jell. I used a candy thermometer and got it up to 220 degrees. after that failed I did the same thing and doubled the pectin. It still didn't jell.
