"Thanks to Jean Morris for this recipe"

  • 3-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2-1/4 cups Dr. Pepper
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • few drops red food color (optional)
  • 3 ounces liquid pectin

Combine sugar, Dr. Pepper & lemon juice in a large saucepan. Add food color if desired and mix well. Place over high heat* and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Stir in liquid pectin at once. Bring to a full rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, skim off foam with a metal spoon.

Pour quickly into hot sterilized jars and seal. Makes 5 (6-ounce) glasses.

(Better yet just put in quart jar-cool-refrigerate. You are going to eat it soon anyway. So goooooooooood)


*Dr. Pepper should only be heated if it is made with pure cane sugar.


Dr Pepper  is the national drink of Texas and no trip to Waco is complete without a trip to the Dr Pepper museum. The museum is well thought out and the displays will take you back in Dr Pepper time.  It also try's to debunk some Dr Pepper myths.  Myth number 1 Dr Pepper contains NO PRUNE JUICE!

The gift shop has a wide selection Dr Pepper memorabilia and of course bottles of Dr Pepper.  The bottled Dr Pepper they sell is not your run of the mill Dr Pepper but Dr Pepper bottled in the oldest Dr Pepper bottling plant in America.  That plant is located in Dublin (Dr Pepper), Texas.  It is still made with Imperial Pure Cane sugar not corn Syrup that used by all other soft drink bottlers.

Don't leave the museum without getting a Dr Pepper from the antique soda fountain,  I recommend adding a scoop of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream.

It has been said that imitation Texans drink their Dr. Pepper with scotch whiskey but real Texans drink their Dr Pepper straight.  


Hot Dr Pepper
 "I haven't had any of this since Betty Lou's party in 1966"

Dr Pepper

Thin lemon slices

 Pour Dr Pepper into saucepan. Heat* to simmering temperature about 180 degrees F or just below boiling point, (The beverage will appear to be boiling long before if is hot due to the carbonation.) Place a thin slice of fresh lemon in bottom of cup and pour steaming hot Dr Pepper over it.

 Serve at once. This drink will be hot - sipping hot or should be about 170 degrees F. when ready to drink.

 NOTE: A fresh slice of lemon is required to give the proper taste of Hot Dr Pepper

To bake, turn on broiler. Line a raised cookie sheet with foil.

Place wings on foil and broil about 10 to 12 minutes on each side until crisped and well done, with no pink juices.

Serve hot. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Buy the Dublin (Dublin, Texas) hot spices for the wings, you can notch the “heat” up. 


Dr Pepper Jell-O
"Thanks to Jean Morris for this recipe"

1 box cherry Jell-O ½ cup boiling water 1-1/2 cups Dr Pepper (or Coke)

Dissolve the Jell-O in the boiling* water. Add the Dr Pepper. Use a large container as it foams when you add the Dr Pepper. Chill and eat. Will remind you of an old fountain Cherry Dr. Pepper. Also gives the Jell-O a little tingle!
