Failed jelly, delicious alternatives

We’ve talked about failed jelly before.

As predicted in my last post, my creamsicle jelly didn’t set. I accidentally diluted my orange pectin with twice the amount of water called for in Linda Ziedrich’s recipe. A failure to read and reduce my recipe properly. No biggie. 

We are not crying into our creamiscle syrup over here.

Creamsicle yogurt makes you look forward breakfast. (I’m not gonna lie, sometimes I’m already thinking about breakfast before I go to bed at night.) 

Or, say you make doughnuts. Or zeppoles (a fancy name for doughnut holes). Your syrupy jelly will make a fine glaze. Use it straight up or add a tablespoon or two of powdered sugar to 1/4-1/2 cup of syrup to make a wonderful glaze and/or dipping sauce!

You can be sure that I’ll also be spooning some of this syrup into some club soda for a fizzy sweet treat!

What kinds of things do you do with your jelly mishaps?
