Mulled Wine Jelly Recipe

This is my recipe for Mulled Wine Jelly:

Mulled Wine Jelly

based on this recipe


  • 1 bottle (750ml) Merlot or other full-bodied wine (the cheaper, the better!)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (bottled is fine)
  • 1 packet pectin (New Zealanders look for King’s Jam Setting Mix in the baking isle of your local Pak ‘n Save)
  • 4 1/2 cups sugar
  • Spices (all spice, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, too taste)


  1. Combine wine, lemon juice, and Jam Setting Mix in a large Jam Pot.
  2. Bring to the boil, stirring frequently. Add sugar and spices, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Return to a rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly or until setting point.
  4. Remove from heat. Skim foam off top, if necessary.
  5. Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilised jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space.
  6. Process for ten minutes in boiling water bath.
  7. Serve with a sharp cheddar and crackers. Enjoy!
