Dandelion Jelly

I heard about this jelly for the first time last year however I did not get to try making it.  Our dandelions are popping up everywhere so yesterday the girls and I gathered some blossoms.  We picked all the green off however I forgot to get a picture of that.  We then poured boiling water over the petals and let it steep overnight.

It isn’t very attractive at this stage.  I must admit this was a time consuming jelly.  It took a while to get the green off the bloom.  The end result though is beautiful in the jar.

This picture doesn’t really show how pretty it is.  Every thing I have read about this jelly says it tastes like honey.  We tasted it when it was hot and it DID taste like honey.  Amazing!  You can read more about dandelion jelly here http://theblessedhearth.blogspot.com/2011/06/another-jelly-recipe.html  She also has a recipe for apple blossom jelly that I am thinking about trying. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.
