Not this year! The kids and I picked blossoms on Sunday and made jelly on Sunday. Yay! I followed this recipe for jelly. We used about 2.5 cups of blossoms, and poured 2.5 cups of boiling water over them. They sat for a while (probably 10 minutes?) until the water was dark blue.
Kylee took the pictures for this post.
Then we added the lemon juice and watched the liquid turn to a lovely purple color.
Then we added the liquid to the pot, and the packet of pectin. Then we stirred until it boiled, and let it boil for 1 minute.
Lovely pose, Devin.
Once it boiled for 1 minute, we added the sugar, returned it to a boil and let it boil for 1 minute.
It's very pretty!! And it has a really nice delicate grape flavor.
