Dandelion Jelly

IMG_1512Yesterday the girls spent the afternoon picking dandelions.  We are making dandelion jelly.  We tried to make it several years ago but it never set up to jelly stage so we had dandelion syrup.  It was very good just not what we were trying to make.  So this year we are trying again.  We followed the recipe found here http://www.simplycanning.com/dandelion-jelly.html

IMG_1513They picked about a gal. of dandelion flowers however this was too many.  Next time we will not pick as much.

IMG_1514The most time consuming part is getting off all the green stuff.

IMG_1515They are such a pretty yellow color.

IMG_1516I have excellent helpers though so no matter what we are doing it goes fast and is lots of fun.  These girls are awesome!

Enjoy your day and God bless.
