Mulled Apple Cider Jelly - Reduced Sugar - Jam Maker


Preserving Method: Freezing

  1. MEASURE 3 cups apple cider in a 4-cup or larger liquid measuring cup. Gradually whisk pectin into juice until fully incorporated. (Pectin will not be completely dissolved at this time.) Pour juice mixture into the clean Pot fitted with the Stirrer. Add butter/margarine to help reduce foaming. Combine sugar and spices in a medium mixing bowl; set aside.
  2. PRESS Jelly button – the cook time will automatically default to 25 minutes. Press Enter.
  3. WAIT 4 minutes for appliance to sound 4 short beeps indicating that it is time to add sugar. Add sugar and spice mixture gradually while Stirrer continues running.
  4. THE APPLIANCE will continue to automatically stir your ingredients while it cooks. Stay within earshot of the Jam & Jelly Maker, the appliance will beep again at the end of the process signaling jelly cooking is complete. Press cancel and unplug the appliance.
  5. REMOVE Stirrer using a pot holder. Skim foam, if necessary, from top of jelly. 
  6. PRESERVE jelly immediately, either by refrigeration or freezing methods listed here. 


  • Sediment is naturally occurring in apple cider. If you prefer to remove, separate before measuring out the 3 cups needed for the recipe.
  • Spices may rise to the surface during cooking process. They will still infuse the jelly with flavor and can be removed with the foam during step 5.
