I found this recipe in our local rural monthly paper.

I just love making my own jellies and jams, and the easier the recipe, the better! This one looks pretty fool proof, and that is what I need.

Apple Cider Jelly

1 qt. apple cider
2/3 cup Red Hots cinnamon candies
1 pkg. (1-3/4 oz.) pectin, powdered
5 cups sugar

In a large pot, combine cider, Red Hots and pectin. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring often. Add sugar and return to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and skim off any foam. Carefully ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Adjust caps. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

That's it!! Enjoy!
