Cinnamon Apple Cider Jelly

Cinnamon Apple Cider Jelly by Missy Horton

We love jams and jellies at our house and because we are surrounded by great berries where we live and great tree fruits across the mountains, we have ample opportunity to make LOTS of homemade jam. Seriously, I think I'm up to 60+ jars now. My minions love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (still!) and we tend to give a lot away…
