|I love the color of this jelly|
I then cooked the jelly until I could put a spoonful of jelly on a plate to the side and have it jell as it cooled. At the same time, I was sterilizing my jars in another pot. As soon as I was happy with the level of jelling, I started to fill my jars. I would fill one, wipe the rim, boil the lid, tighten the ring, and flip the jar upside down on the counter.
When I was all finished, I had 4 half cups, six half pints and half of a pint jar. When I tasted the finished jelly I was thrilled with the flavor. It was sweet and floral without being overwhelming.
All in all, it was a wonderful experiment that I will definitely be repeating this year. Everyone that has tried it so far has liked it.
This is totally worth the time and effort if you like to give homemade gifts or just really like jelly. It would go perfectly with tea and toast, or scones.
