Let’s Learn How to Take Texas’ Favorite Drink, Dr Pepper, and Turn It Into Jelly
When it comes to jelly, I'm a strawberry guy. Nothing against grape jelly, it's good, but put the two in front of me and I'll pick strawberry. However, learning that there is a Dr Pepper flavored jelly makes me rethink that decision. This sounds great. Let's learn how to make it.
wideopencountry.com gives us some step by step instructions on what to do to make some, too.
- Start with 4 cups of Dr Pepper poured into a pot.
- Bring the pot to a rolling boil for five minutes.
- Remove and stir in one pack of Sure-Jell.
- Add 4 cups of sugar to the pot.
- Bring the pot back to boiling for two minutes.
- While the jelly is boiling, submerge your jars in a pot of hot (not boiling) water and put on the stove to keep warm. Do the same for the jar lids.
- After two minutes of boiling, remove the jelly from the stove, let it cool slightly then pour into your jars.
- Submerge the sealed jars back into the hot water and bring to a boil.
There you have it, Dr Pepper jelly to try on your biscuit or toast. And apparently you can do this with other sodas, too. I can certainly see a Big Red jelly being really good. Maybe a root beer jelly? Okay, that might be taking it a little too far. Follow along with the video below and try it out yourself.
Being a Type 1 Diabetic, this would obviously be instant death. I wonder if using Dr Pepper Zero Sugar and maybe Splenda instead of sugar would work? Maybe that can be my weekend project. If I decide to do it, I'll let you know how it turns out.
