Picture of Coffee Jelly
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.


Step 1:

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.)

All of the pectin ive found here has sugar already added to it.
Is that the same with yours or is it really pure?

COOL! Is there a way to do this without using instant coffee?
Could I just brew a regular cup of coffee and use that?

Instant tastes like, not nice...
Sure. Just brew a strong coffee and use it to replace the 4 cups water. Just be careful as reheating can cause it to become bitter, which is probably why he used instant. Maybe using a cold brew will handle it.
For the first try I used an instant of "higher" quality and it turned out great. I may explore more options with future batches. It's awesome by the way.
Actually looking at it, you can do it with a "no cook" pectin. Google "no cook pectin" to find it.

I think it would be good with peanut butter, or cream cheese. How about a thin layer on top of custard, or cheesecake?

How does it taste? What have you tried it on?

It is not the kind of jelly I would put on a piece of toast. But it has a slightly bitter sweet "caramel-ly" taste that really compliments creamy vanilla ice cream. I also have poured it over a beef roast before cooking and it adds a rich flavor.
