Apple Jelly

Great recipe, measurements worked out perfectly. Used the resulting jelly with Apple stuffed pork chops (linked below). The sweet slightly tart would work great with some spice, perhaps red pepper flakes added for a sweet-spicy kick.

I am going to try this and add jalapeno peppers and replace a little of the juice with a little apple cider vinegar to it and make it "Pepper Jelly". Hope it comes out ok, gonna be Christmas gifts.

You didn't say how much sugar goes in the jelly


It’s so much easier to use bottled 100%juice. I use equal amount of juice and sugar. I found perfect recipe. 2 3/4 cup juice. 3 1/4 cup sugar. Sure Jell 1tsp lemon juice. Boil on med heat 1 min. I have also used Cran/apple juice from bottled juice
