Mountain Dew Jelly

Hello! I thought for my first post I'd share my cousin's recipe for Mountain Dew jelly. Citrus flavored and simple to make.

3 1/4 cup Mountain Dew
2 T lemon juice
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 pkg Sure Jell pectin

Pour soda & lemon juice into a 6 or 8 qt pot. Bring to a boil & allow it to boil for 3 mins. Let cool slightly then follow the Sure Jell directions. Process for 10 mins in a boiling water bath.

Holy crap. I think I may have to try making jelly from a bunch of different sodas! Coke, Orange, Grape, Strawberry, Ginger Ale, Root Beer (ooh I bet that one would really be good!), Cream Soda, etc.

Not very nutritious, but good for desserts an such.

I think I love you.

I've been on a jelly making kick lately (made Banana Jam, Blueberry Butter, & Guanabana Jelly), and my other half and I have stopped drinking soda (Mt. Dew being our poison of choice), however we still have some sitting around, tempting us.


It's not cheating if we eat it right? ;)

Yup, made it based off of this recipe.

It is fan-fucking-tastic on a PB&J sammich.

Does the Mt Dew keep its high caffeine content during the process? Because if it does, I'm totes doing this with some Nos and it will become a breakfast staple.

I would assume that it keeps a good deal of it. It isn't very water soluble, and it doesn't break down to other substances in heat.

Mt dew has caffeine? In australia it doesnt have any! how weird
