Lavender Jelly

3  1/2 c. water
1/2 c. dried lavender flowers
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 box  (1 3/4 oz.) powdered pectin
4 c. sugar

In a large saucepan over high heat, bring water to a boil. Remove from heat.  Add flowers, cover and let steep for 20 minutes.  Strain mixture into a deep kettle, discarding flowers.  (Your house will smell wonderful after this!)

Stir in lemon juice and pectin, making sure that pectin is dissolved.  Over high heat, bring mixture to a boil; add sugar.  Stir well.  Return mixture to a rolling boil; let boil for 4 minutes.

After boiling, ladle hot jelly into clean jelly jars, leaving 1/4 in. headspace, wipe rims, adjust lids and rings. Process in hot water bath 10 minutes.

Makes about 5 1/2 pints.

  1. Neat! You made your jelly finally.[o= What do you eat it on? I have never had lavender jelly.

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  2. Mary,
    We eat it on homemade bread, but I'm thinking it would be yummy on pancakes and waffles, too. :)
    Thanks for checking in. :)

    Blessings and ((Hugs)) to you,

  3. Your jelly looks so pretty! I have never eaten anything lavender before, I will definitely try this...

    Blessings to you,
    Amy Jo

  4. I am such a fan of lavender...I grow it all over my garden :) My husband says it has become a weed...but now, I can share that I could make this jelly and enjoy it all winter long.

    Thank you for sharing...and what a treat to have found you ;0)


  5. Thanks for visiting my blog, Lisa. How exciting to land on this post when I stopped by yours! I love jelly making, and I'm hoping to try some herb jellies this year. This looks so pretty, and I can only imagine how lovely it must smell :-)

  6. Your jelly looks lovely!

    Hi! Stopping by from MBC. Great blog!
    Have a nice day!

  7. A lady I knew some years ago made this. It is the most delicious stuff! I always felt a little bit like a wood nymph or a fairy eating it since it's made from flowers. I've copied the recipe to use for my daughter when she gets a little older- I think it will be fun for tea parties. Now, to track down violets!

  8. I have never heard of lavender jelly before. What does it taste like? It sure does look good in the jar though. :)

    I also enjoyed reading your last post about the nice day that you spent with your children during the rain indoors. It was a lovely story.

    I found your blog today via a friend's blog, and I am really glad I did. It's a nice one. I have decided to "follow along" with you. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love to hear from my readers, and your thoughts are welcome. And I try my best to respond to each and every comment. :)
