Dandelion Jelly Recipe
4 cups yellow dandelion blossoms
3 cups boiling water
4 1/2 cups sugar
Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 pkg powdered Pectin
Separate the yellow blossoms from the green stems. Get lots of blossoms.... lots and lots of blossoms. More blossoms mean more flavor for thejelly.
Make certain there are no green stems, they taste disgusting and will destroy the entire batch.
Bring the water to a boil and fill the water with yellow dandelion blossom shreds. Simmer over a gentle heat about 10 minutes. Pour the water and blossoms through a strainer.
Press the blossoms out as dry as possible to extract the maximum amount of water and flavor. Add more blossoms to the strained water and simmer for about 10 minutes. Continue simmering and straining until all the blossoms are used up.
Skim and Pour into hot jars and seal. Food coloring adds an appealing appearance as the Jelly itself is generally a murky yellowish color.
This is really good, a very unusual taste but try it you'll like it.
