Candy Apple Jelly

 Welcome to day 2 of our Celebration of Fall. This is one of my new favorite jellies.  Dave made fresh apple cider last year that we bottled and froze (so good). I used it to make this awesome jelly. Pressing Apples has become a family tradition for us. Each fall we have all our friends and family bring over apples and we press cider all day long.  It is amazing how good it is!

4 cups apple cider (your favorite apple juice will do)
1/2 cup red hots
1 box of pectin
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon butter

In large pan combine cider and red hots.  Slowly mix in pectin. Bring mixture to a full boil. Stir in sugar and bring back to a boil.  Once boiling add butter and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour into hot jars, leaving a 1/4 inch gap at top. Apply lids and allow to cool.
