Last year at this time, I posted a recipe for Cinnamon Apple Jelly. It was such a big hit with friends and family around the holidays that I thought I might repost it! This jelly has a very bold cinnamon and apple flavor that comes mainly from a whole box of Celestial Seasonings Tea.
In my blog post last year I mused that a lot of other flavors of their teas would also make as memorable jelly. So instead of just reposting my recipe, I decided that I would try my hand at making Peach Passion Jelly! I can take no credit for the amazing peach flavor … Celestial Seasonings gets the credit for that lively flavor. I can’t wait to share this with friends and family this year!
- 3 cups Apple cider
- 1 can (12 oz) Kerns Peach Nectar
- 1 box Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion Tea (20 servings)
- 1 box Sure-Jell no sugar pectin
- 5 cups white sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
In a medium saucepan, bring the cider and nectar to a low boil. Add all 20 teabags and stir to make sure they’re submerged. Steep for 15 minutes and remove the bags.
Whisk in the box of pectin and heat to a full rolling boil. (Mixture should still bubble when being stirred)
Stir in sugar and lemon juice and once again heat to full rolling boil! By the time it gets to a boil you will notice it starting to jell.
Ladle jelly into 8 half pint jars and can in a hot water bath for 10-12 minutes.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
