It has been a few days now and I am sad to say: the wine jelly (not sure why I keep pluralizing it) did not turn out. It did not really set properly (I blame the fact that I removed it from the stove and then stirred in the pectin- or I did not stir for long enough). In addition it is unbelievably sweet, I made a mistake using a late harvest wine.
There will be a re-do in the coming weeks where:
- I will not attempt any math on the recipe, no more halves or thirds
- I will use a less sweeter wine
- I will actually use a timer!
In the meantime, I have a jar full of super sweet half-set jelly. It’s time to make linzer cookies.
