I was playing around with ideas for coffee and thought, what about jelly? So this is a pretty simple version. I think it would be nice as a layer between cakes, or simple cookies. It could also be used as a base for marinades on meat.
Gather your ingredients. You will need:
4 cups water
1/2 cup instant coffee
1 box of fruit pectin (1.75 oz)
5 1/2 cups sugar
You will also need clean canning jars. (I used 3 16 oz jars but had a little left over.)
Dissolve the instant coffee into 1 cup of water and set aside.
Pour the remaining water into a pot.
Add the pectin and bring to a boil while stirring. Then add the sugar and return to a boil, continuing to stir.
Add the coffee slowly and once again return to a boil while stirring.
Remove from heat and fill the jars.
Cover with lids and let cool. Will set after a day or two. Keep refrigerated.
My favorite use: topping vanilla ice cream.
