Wine jelly truly tastes like wine. The alcohol burns off during the cooking process, but the delicious flavor lingers on into the jelly. Toss those old boring fruit jellies and use these amazing flavors for the same recipes, like banana split, roasting lamb, ice cream, crepes, crispy bread, croissants.
Why is it so liquid? It's jelly and supposed to slip and slide inside the jar. Once you dip into the jar you will see that it really is solid and the jelly keeps its shape. Use a spoon to scoop the jelly out of the jar and refrigerate (after opening), just like any other jelly.
