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.

You will also need clean canning jars. (I used 3 16 oz jars but had a little left over.)

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.
