Apple Cinnamon Anise Jelly

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Apple Cinnamon Anise Jelly is one of those fun variations that keeps apple jelly from getting boring. The cinnamon is classic, especially paired with apples. The anise is the surprising taste in this one. Anise seed has a licorice-like flavor but would never be that crass. It has a floral sweetness to it, as opposed to the sharp, slightly bitter flavor of licorice. This is a more sophisticated variation of apple jelly that is a joy to ingest.

  1. Once your jars have completed processing, turn off the heat, remove the lid, and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Then, use the jar lifter to remove them from the boiling water bath canner. Space the jars about an inch apart on the counter for 24 hours to cool and completely seal.

  2. After 24 hours, remove the ring and wash the jars paying particular attention to the threads.

  3. If your jar did not seal, then place it in the refrigerator and use it immediately.

  4. Store the sealed jars in a cool dry place to enjoy for the next 1-3 years. After three years the nutritional value of canned food diminishes. The quality is best during the first year.
