We have a family tradition of picking wild muscadines together in the Fall. This year however, our crazy football schedule has kept us out of the woods. Lucky for me my wonderful father-in-law picked some beautiful muscadines for me.
These aren’t the normal Arkansas wild muscadines these are planted white muscadines and they made the most beautiful gold jelly! It looked almost like honey in the jars.
I wish ya’ll could have smelled my house when the jelly was cooking! I don’t have a fancy jelly recipe to share with you. I just use the recipe for grape jelly in the Sure-Jell box. I do have one fancy kitchen gadget that is a must for making jams and jellies.
This is a food mill. I use it to separate the peel and the seeds from the cooked fruit. I use it for muscadine jelly, plum butter, and apple butter to just name a few examples of where it is helpful.
Do you have a favorite jelly you make?
