Easy Sangria Jelly Recipe-Spreadable Sangria!

Sharing is caring!

This Sangria jelly is just like drinking a sangria–only it’s spreadable.

It’ the sweet and spicy taste of sangria with every bite no matter how you spread it or serve it. 

This is a Sangria jelly that is quick and easy to make and is always appreciated as a gift.

You don’t have to wait for the fruit to be in season…wine is always in season; right?!

Some people like to drink a bottle of wine, some prefer to make jelly with it, and still, there are those of us who like the benefits of sipping the wine while making the jelly.

Dust off the cutting board and make an amazing cheese board with a side of this Sangria Jelly.

How to Make a Cheese Board:

Start with a large cutting board or serving platter.

You’ll want a variety of cured meats such as salami, prosciutto, and pepperoni

Next, choose your selection of soft and hard cheeses. 

Select a variety of cheese milk types and colors to bring the flavor.

Some cheese choices include Brie, Gouda, Havarti, Monterrey Jack, Mozzarella, Provolone, Blue Cheese and gourmet cheeses.

Add Olives, colorful antipasto and things such as artichoke hearts, pickled onions, and vegetables.

Dried fruit such as grapes, berries, bananas, and apricots are a great addition.

Add some texture with nuts such as Brazilian, pistachios, pignoli, almonds, macadamia, and hazelnuts.

Use small containers for mustards and jellies, such as this Sangria Jam.

Finally, add finishing touches with pieces of bread and crackers to spread and top with the board’s selections.

What is Sangria?

Sangria is one of the most popular drinks in Spanish cuisine.

Sangria means “bloodletting” in Spanish.

Traditionally, Sangria is a punch that uses a base of red wine, with chopped fruit and other ingredients added in for additional flavor.

It’s fruity, spicy and just the right amount of sweet.

Sangria Jelly

Like traditional Sangria, this Sangria Jelly is fruity and spicy, though maybe a little more sweet than the traditional beverage.

It’s a unique and tasty spread that’s easy to make and sure to be enjoyed.

I love this Sangria Jelly on crackers with cream cheese.

It makes amazing peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

It’s delightful in thumbprint cookies. Really, I could just eat it by the spoon out of the jar!

You can learn all about the history of sangria, or just start making the jelly!

It’s up to you!

This Sangria jelly is just like drinking a sangria! Try serving it as an appetizer with crackers and cheese; it makes the best wine and peanut butter sandwich.

Sangria and Peanut Butter Sandwich

Pectin requires both sugar and acid to set.
 
If you try and adjust the recipe to use less sugar, you’ll end up with liquid instead of jelly.

I have a 5 year old who thinks everything that I eat must be taste tested by her, just in case I am being poisoned lol, so I am just wondering, does all of the alcohol cook out of the sangria? Thanks!

The alcohol burns off during the boil process. I've made many wine jellies with no issues.

I am not sure about the alcohol. My kids eat it when I have made it. It doesn't taste boozy.
