  • Ideas on how to use up grape jelly????
    I cleaned out my pantry and must have found 5 large jars of grape jelly, What can I do with them, my kids aren't into PBJ's no more, and I've heard there are ways to make BBQ sauce and things with it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Got any parties over the holidays? Get some of the frozen meatballs, put in crockpot. Pour on a bottle of chili sauce, the kind in the bottle in the ketchup area. Then some grape jelly. Let them cook for a few hours. I know my amounts are not exact, But probably a cup of jelly would work.

    Also any cookie baking? Thumbprint cookies, with the grape jelly in the middle.

    I use equal parts grape jelly and ketchup and half the amount of BBQ sauce
    ex:
    2 c. grape jelly
    2 c. ketchup
    1 c. BBQ sauce
    Use for meatballs, Li'l Smokies, etc.

    Mitten Sandwiches

    Recipe By :
    Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : CROCKPOT Sandwiches

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 (2-pound) boneless beef chuck roast
    1 (1-pound) loaf frozen bread dough -- thawed
    Red liquid food coloring
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon water
    1 cup barbecue sauce
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup grape jelly

    Place the roast in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until the meat is tender. Meanwhile, divide bread dough into eighths. Tint two portions with red food coloring; divide red portions into thirds. Roll each into a 3-in. rope; set aside. For each mitten, flatten one white portion into a 4-in. oval. Place on a greased baking sheet. With a sharp knife or kitchen shears, make a 1-1/2-in. diagonal cut into side of oval toward the center for the thumb. Tuck tip under to form a round thumb; spread thumb and mitten apart. For cuff, place a colored rope below each mitten; pinch edges together and flatten slightly. In a small bowl, beat egg and water; brush over dough (dough does not need to rise). Bake at 350' for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Remove roast from slow cooker; discard juices. Shred beef with a fork and return to slow cooker. Add the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, ketchup and jelly; heat through. Split mitten rolls; fill with shredded beef.
