Add 3/4 cup evaporated milk and mix well. (I use 1/4 cup evaporated milk, then add enough water to make 3/4 cup) Bring to boil 3 cups water. Add above mixture to boiling water, stirring as you add mix. When thick add 1 tsp vanilla and 2 tbsp. butter. Serve with hot biscuits.
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!

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