Dandelion Jelly

This jelly was sold at the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale. Mary Martin and her volunteers from the Elmira Mennonite Church make 400 jars of jams and jellies to sell at the sale including this recipe.

1 quart dandelion flowers, washed

Pour boiling water over flowers and let stand overnight. In the morning, put through a fine strainer and add enough water to make 8 cups

Put in a large kettle, add 2 packages of Certo, bring to a boil.

Add 12 cups sugar, 1 cup lemon juice and boil hard for 3 minutes. Put in jars and seal.

(Makes 25 half cup jars)

Thanks for this recipe, Ruth. I have lots of dandelions and I'm going to try it.

All our dandelions are fluff right now!
