Below is a precious gift from my kitchen to your kitchen. Here is my simple recipe for sparkling wine grape jelly. The ideal wine is an extra dry wine with balanced sweetness with a slight hint of florals.
HOMEMADE GRAPE JELLY
2 pounds seedless purple grapes, 1 (2 oz.) package dry pectin, 3/4 cups water, 1 1/2 tablespoons 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.
