Even in my adulthood, I have eaten quite a few of these sandwiches.

I love to switch it up with almond butter, strawberry jelly, my new favorite is almond butter with coconut pulp in it, spread on apples when I am cutting back on gluten.
Welch’s grape was always my favorite, pure and simple and I love the grape flavor and the texture that the jelly has.
Grape jelly might be the second best way to enjoy grapes. The first is wine.
I also like to eat grapes fresh, frozen, roasted, in salsa, but my favorite one will always be wine.
What better way to combine my top two favorites and make wine jelly. Think of all the possibilities…

Place your wine and juice in the pot.
Whisk in the sugar and pectin and boil for 1 minute.
Pour the cooled jelly into the freezer containers.
I love these freezer containers! I bought a box of 250 because I liked them so much. They are great for portioning meals and soups.
I used them when I made soup on the Weight Watchers Diet and for packing my lunches.
They are dishwasher safe and since they are so inexpensive, I am not upset when they get ruined, lost, or loaned out indefinitely!
