Red Wine Jelly

Red wine jelly is a unique trend that is changing the way we think about wine

Leftover wine is rarely an issue in any household. However, there are a few occasions you don't seem to have a use for that half empty bottle of Chianti, or at least a good enough excuse. Well, now you can start looking at the bottle as half full...of wine jelly that is.
