Apple Cinnamon Jelly

Looking for something different to do with the apple juice you have left from your apple picking expedition?

Try making some Apple Cinnamon Jelly for your breakfast toast!

Apple Cinnamon Jelly


  • 1 qt. apple juice
  • 1 3/4 oz. pkg. powdered fruit pectin
  • 5 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. red cinnamon candies

Combine juice, food coloring and pectin in a large saucepan. Bring to a full boil. Add sugar and cinnamon candies. Stir until dissolved. Return to full boil and boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat and skim off foam.

Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars and lids in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Set bands aside.

Pour apple cinnamon mixture into hot sterilized jars.  Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band until fit is fingertip tight.

Process jars in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

This is an unusual jelly with a wonderful flavor... and I've got some great things in mind for it.  Stay tuned!
