Cooking with Wine
We know, leftover wine isn't usually an issue in our kitchen. However, sometimes you don't have a use for that half empty bottle of Merlot (especially if it wasn't top notch to start with). Well, start looking at the bottle as half full... of wine jelly. You can use any varietal of wine you have on hand, red or white. Spread this homemade delicacy over cheese, package it into a unique hostess gift or give as a Christmas gift to your favorite people with a bottle of your home vinted wine. Ingredients: 6cups sugar 4cups wine 1bottle liquid pectin Directions: Combine sugar and wine in a large saucepan. Mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Add liquid pectin and mix well. Skim off any foam and discard. Pour immediately into hot, sterilized jars and seal. Let cool.
