Soda Pop Jelly


I make a lot of jellies. I currently have peach banana split, corn cob, apple, watermelon, apple-raspberry, grape, and cherry coke. Not to mention the whiskey-raisin apple butter.
And other things! That’s lemon pound cake soap, and lemon pound cake candles. And here is Glory Bee milk soap.
And peppermint soap.
Some items, I do in lines where I have soaps and candles and scrubs and lotions all in the same scent.
Here’s the whole display.
I have four shelves in the studio dedicated to display space. But back to jelly! Cherry coke jelly in particular.
That’s cherry coke jelly in the center of this picture. I posted a pic of that a while back and said I was going to post the recipe, so here it is. And of course you can make this with any kind of soda pop!

How to make Soda Pop Jelly:

12 ounces soda pop, any kind
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 cups sugar
1 3-ounce envelope liquid pectin

Combine soda pop, lemon juice, and sugar in a pot. Bring to a boil. Stir in liquid pectin. Bring to a boil again, and boil hard one minute. Remove from heat. Ladle hot jelly into hot jars and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. This yields around four half-pints.

Dr. Pepper jelly. Root beer jelly. Mountain Dew jelly. Whatever is your favorite soda pop, it can be a jelly. I haven’t tried any others yet, but this one really does taste like cherry coke!

    What a great idea. Looks like something I will have to try. I can see Dr. Pepper jelly being on my daughter’s wish list. Thanks for all you do Suzanne. I love it when you show us what you have going on. Looking forward to an animal update when you have time.

    I have a dear friend that drinks nothing but Dr. Pepper, I have to make her some Dr. Pepper jelly, she will be so thrilled.

    Hi Suzanne,
    I find your jellies very interesting ( we make our own range here in South Africa). One problem that we have is that we don’t get liquid pectin here, and powder pectin is very expensive. Do you have any sugestions of what we can substitute for liquid pectin?

    How would you convert Soda Pop Jelly using diet soda?
