Jelly made from dandelions is similar in taste to spring honey. Try making some of your own with this recipe!
Pick the dandelion blossoms and rinse thoroughly. Snip stem and green collar.
Boil petals in 2 quarts water for 3 minutes. Cool and strain, pressing petals with fingers to extract juice.
Measure out 3 cups of dandelion liquid. Add lemon juice and powdered fruit pectin. Bring mixture to a boil (large jelly kettles work best for this).
Add sugar, stirring to mix well. Continue stirring and boil mixture for 2 ½ minutes.
Pour into small glasses and cover with paraffin when jelly is cool. Enjoy!
