Lavender Jelly

Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup dried or fresh lavender flowers
1 box powdered pectin or 1 pouch liquid pectin
Juice of 1 lemon
4 cups sugar

 

Directions:

Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan, stir in lavender flowers, remove from heat and let steep for about 20 minutes.  After steeping, strain liquid into a separate bowl and discard the lavender flowers.  Stir in lemon juice and pectin until the pectin is completely dissolved.

Place mixture back into saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat; add sugar.  Continue to allow mixture to boil at a hard rolling boil for 2 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

After boiling, transfer the jelly into hot sterilized jars. Fill them to within 1/4 inch of the top, wipe any spilled jam off the top, seal the lid and tighten the ring around them.
