Below is an endearing gift from my kitchen to your kitchen.  Here is my simple recipe for sparkling wine grape jelly.  The ideal wine is extra dry wine with balanced sweetness with a slight hint of florals. Last but not least you can find the perfect sparkling wines that are reasonably priced.


1 (2 oz.) package dry pectin, 3/4 cups water, 1 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar, 3 cups spumante wine, 4 cups sugar.

Sterilize five half-pint jars. Set aside and allow to cool.  In a large heavy pot pour in the pectin and water.  Stirring constantly, bring to a boil.  Boil for at least 2-minutes, reduce the heat to medium-high, now add the wine, vinegar, and sugar.  Continue to stir vigorously until the sugar is melted, which takes about 5-minutes.  Remove from the heat, skim off foam.  Pour the jelly into the jars within 1/2 inch of the top.  Wipe clean and seal with the canning lids.  Cool to room temperature then refrigerate.  It takes about 3-days for everything to set.  You’ve got jelly.
