I've never canned before, and decided to try this as my first. I had some $20 bottles of Napa Chardonnay I wanted to use. I followed the recipe exactly, and used 1/2 pint jars, properly sterilized and super-clean environment. I used the 1.75oz box of dry pectin at a rolling boil. The jars sealed, but the jelly did not set. So now I'm out 4 jars, and a $20 bottle of wine, and nothing to show for it but 4 jars of wine syrup. I think my next attempt will be will cheaper wine, or just putting the mix in tupperware and waiting for it to set in the fridge, then reheating and continuing with jarring it if it sets.
