Dandelion Jelly

Recipe for Dandelion Jelly


1 quart of bright, fresh dandelion blossoms
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 package of powdered fruit pectin
5 1/2 cups of sugar


Rinse the dandelions quickly in cold water and snip off the stems and green collars under the blossoms. Boil the petals in 2 quarts of water for 3 minutes. Cool and strain, pressing the petals with your fingers to extract all the juice.

Measure out 3 cups of the dandelion liquid and place in a large jelly kettle. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 package of powdered fruit pectin (1 ¾ ounces). Bring the mixture to a boil. Add 5 ½ cups of sugar, stirring to mix well. Continue stirring, and boil the mixture for 2-½ minutes.

Pour into small glasses and cover with paraffin when the jelly is cool.
