There’s Such a Thing as Dr. Pepper Jelly and You Can Make It at Home
Here’s one for the fans of all things Dr. Pepper.
It’s no secret we Texans love all things Texas and Dr. Pepper is no exception. The soda was created in Waco back in 1885 and the headquarters are currently located in Plano.
Wide Open Country has shared the recipe for Dr. Pepper jelly and it’s surprisingly simple. I’ve also included a handy video that’ll walk you through the process.
1. Add 4 cups of Dr. Pepper soda to a large pot
2. Bring the pot to a full rolling boil for 5 minutes
3. Remove from heat and stir in one pack of sure-jell with a metal spoon
4. Combine sugar to the pot (4 cups sugar)
5. Bring the pot back to the stove and heat to a boil, keep boiling for 2 minutes
6. While the jelly is boiling, prepare your jars. Put them in a pot of hot (not boiling) water that covers them completely and put on the stove to keep warm
7. Do the same for the jar lids (put them in hot water in a large saucepan)
8. After 2 more minutes of boiling, remove the jelly from the stove and let it cool slightly before pouring into your jars (use a funnel if desired)
9. Be sure to wipe the lids with a damp cloth to ensure you have a tight seal on the jars
10. Carefully place the sealed jars back into your large pot of hot water
11. Bring the pot back to the stove on high heat and let the water boil one last time
The best part is that you can use the recipe to make all kinds of different soda flavors. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally down for some Mexican Coke jelly.
