dandelion jelly

For ages I've had a recipe for dandelion blossom jelly.  With beautiful big blossoms on the dandelions this year and knowing they hadn't been sprayed I set about picking them.  It didn't take long to pick the blossoms but it was tedious to remove any green parts that came with them.  I was quite expecting the juice from boiling them to be the beautiful yellow of the blossoms - wrong .... it was more greenish.  I was somewhat skeptical but carried on and made the jelly with the addition of pectin and lots of sugar and a wee bit of yellow food colouring. ^^  Much to my surprise and delight the jelly is absolutely delicious!!  The recipe suggested it would be good with chicken but after sampling it we know it's good with and on many things including toast.  If you'd like the recipe just let me know. 



And last but not least - a hearty thank you to my new followers.

Would love the recipe for the Dandelion Jelly, we had a ton of them this year so next year should be just as many if not more. My email is SDLongan at yahoo dot com. Thanks so much for sharing.

Take Care
Hugs, Sandy

This sounds very interesting and I'm sure is delicious. I'd like to have the recipe, not for me but for my daughter-in-law who always tries out new things.

Amazing! Who knew that these horrible dandelions could make a yummy looking jelly?? (I call them horrible because they are weeds & keep coming back in my garden... they aren't welcome guests :D)

Yes, I would like the recipe! I know about making infusions from the leaves to make a lotion that is wonderful for your skin - a friend does that. I always hear about dandelion jelly, but never had a recipe. Earlier this year, I had a million dandelions, because I don't pull them. I like them. =)
