Mountain Dew Jelly

Mountain Dew Jelly

3 1/4 cups Mountain Dew
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 package Sure Jell pectin

Pour the Mountain Dew and lemon juice into a 6- to 8-quart pot. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 3 minutes. Let it cool slightly, then follow the Sure Jell directions. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

NOTE: You can use more Mountain Dew and reduce it to 3 1/4 cups for a more concentrated flavor.

Cool! I've never heard of jelly made from Mountian Dew. I wonder what other soft drinks would be good.

Yes! My dream of caffeinated toast will soon be a reality!

(Sorry, I couldn't resist. I would like to try this recipe sometime, though.)

I remember a neighbour of mine making Coke and Dr. Pepper jams when I was a child they tasted a bit like those "Sodalicious" candies! :)

My roomie is a huge mountain dew addict... Hmm... I might surprise him with a jar of this next time he leaves the apartment for a few days.

I've been looking at the cakes in our local grocery store bakery: red Hawaiian Punch, blue Kool Burst, and orange Crush ...etc. How very creative! Ode to a new generation!

Just as well I read all the other posts. There was me thinking you'd have to be a really keen chef/cook to go out and collect all that dew, and wondering what on earth it would taste of!
