Wine jelly with limes: the recipe

Canning is fun! And what many do not know: Canning is easy and varied. We have the best sweet and sour canning recipes for you - plus a few helpful tips and tricks!

Ingredients for 6 glasses (250 ml each)

  • 1 bag of Gelfix Classic (Dr. Oetker)
  • 800 g of sugar
  • 200 ml of lime juice
  • 1/2 l dry white wine
  • grated peel of 2 organic limes


  1. Mix the Gelfix with 2 tablespoons of sugar. With juice of lime and wine in a large enough saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring.
  2. Add remaining sugar, boil everything under stirring for 3 minutes bubbly (do not forget gelling sample!). Stir in the shell of the lime. Fill in the sterilized, prepared glasses, close quickly and turn upside down.

Incidentally, this recipe for jelly can also be used with commercial gelling sugar. Gelling agents where you have to add sugar extra have the advantage that you can vary the types of sugar and instead of the white can sometimes use a brown sugar - just to taste.

What is a jelly?

While jams and jams are made from whole fruit or fruit puree, fruit juice is used to make a delicious jelly and boiled down with thickening agents such as gelling sugar. The sweet fruit spread is therefore often very clear and homogeneous in its consistency. Fruity jellies are also suitable as a side dish to savory, spicy food such as meat, cheese or fish or as an ingredient for sauces.

Incidentally, only the fruit spread "jam" may be called, which are made of citrus fruits such as lemon or orange - it says in the jam regulation. In turn, jams may be called all other spreads that have the correct fruit-sugar ratio. Here you can also use apples, berries or grapes. However, these rules only apply if you want to trade in your fruit spreads.
