Keeping it classy with a wine jelly recipe from 1896

This may sound extravagant, but this wine jelly recipe published in 1896 was originally intended for those with very little appetite or who had difficulty keeping more substantial foods down. Wine jelly is tasty on top of toast, biscuits, roast beef, turkey, spooned from shot glasses, squeezed from paper cups, and licked from spoons. It's not overly sweet, and it keeps in the fridge for months. It's simple to make, but will take some planning…

The most awesome chilli jam recipe
