Some time ago, my friend and fellow baking-badass Briana suggested that beer jelly would be a great project for my blog and I agreed. We eventually got together and brought this idea to fruition.
Raspberry lambic seemed like a great starting point for what I’m sure will be the first of many beer jelly adventures. We chose a sweet wine jelly recipe and replaced all of the wine with Lindeman’s Framboise Lambic (a beer that is sweet enough to remind me of sweet wine, tart and funky enough to have its own personality). Orange zest added some pizzaz.
Briana’s husband, Lindsey, and their super cute baby, Tristan, teamed up to help us out. In one of the photos in this post, you’ll notice Tristan assisting by stirring the boiling jam (behind his parents’ back, of course – they would never permit him to use the stove at his young age).
