I came across this recipe in a book this afternoon and thought some people may be interested.

Dandelion Jelly

4 cups of dandelion flowers, you just want the petals no green bits

4 cups of water

1 packet of pectin 11/2 ounce

1 teaspoon lemon extract or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

4 1/2 cups of sugar

pick the flower heads without the stems in the morning

bring the water to the boil and add the petals

bring back to the boil and cook for 3 minutes

strain out the petals , there should be 3 cups of liquid left

discard the petals

stir in pectin , lemon extract and sugar

bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes

pour into warm sterilised jars , seal at once

Never give up Tomorrow is another day.

I am longing to try this , but will have to wait a couple of weeks until I go to Somerset. I don't fancy picking the flowers in the local park with all of the dogs that go there.
