Have you ever had the red or green pepper jelly? Most people seem to serve it by first spreading cream cheese on crackers and then topping with some jelly. Well, this jelly is really delicious served in that same way!
2 cups apple juice
4 cups sugar
½ tsp. butter or margarine
1/3 cup red hots (cinnamon candy hearts)
1 pouch (6 oz.) liquid pectin
Instructions: Be sure to wash and sterilize 4 half-pint canning jars, lids, and rings. In a heavy saucepan, mix together the juice and sugar. Add in the butter and candies and bring this mixture to a boil over high heat. You must stir this constantly! Mix in the pectin and bring back up to a boil, continuing to stir constantly and boil this for 1 minute. Remove the mixture from the heat and skim off the foam from the top of it. Fill the prepared jars leaving a ¼ inch space at the top. Clean off the rims of the jars to allow a good seal and seal the jars.
