The World's First Beer Jelly

When she ran out of fruit to make into jelly, Nancy Warner of Vermont decided to make beer jelly. To her knowledge, she's the only person to develop and method to make sweet jellies from beer. Each flavor from Potlicker Kitchen is made from just three ingredients: beer, cane sugar, and citrus pectin. Warner spoke to the tabloid The Mirror:

“I set about making a jelly with all beer, no fruit. I have made all of my own recipes and can find no record of anyone else make a pure beer jelly before I did.

“I make beer jelly much the way I would make fruit jelly, but instead of kid juice (like fruit juice), I use adult juice.

“Each jar of jelly is approximately half full of beer or wine, but, for better or worse, the jelly is non alcoholic.

“The alcohol is removed during cooking and by dilution of sugar.

“There are only three ingredients - beer, cane sugar and citrus pectin. Because there is no added fruit or flavours, it tastes like a sweet version of the beer it is made with.

“You can actually taste the hop and malt characteristics of each flavour of jelly.

They haven't made much research, they're far from being the first to do this. In France some brewers already cook this kind of thing ("confit de bière") since quite a few years. The recipe is basic and well-known, and is probably used in many other countries.
