Lavender Jelly (Re-post)

Happy Friday, friends!

Ever heard of lavender jelly?
I made some about 2 years ago, and we loved it! And while I was in my herb garden yesterday, I caught a whiff of my lavender, and remembered how delicious the jelly was.

So for those who missed it 2 years ago,  here's my recipe for lavender jelly:

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. This sounds absolutely wonderful! ...but, with the medicines I take lavender is something I cannot 'drink' -I wonder if I could have the jelly though? *I think that I will be wise and not tempt it :(
    Sounds so good!
    thankfully I can use lotion with lavender and light a lavender scented cadle !!

    1. Not sure if you could have the jelly, Deanna. But your family might like it.
      Thanks for visiting. :)

  2. It sounds yummy. I might just have to try it for the novelty of it. It would be great with scones & tea I think. We don't "do" much sugar any more, but I do love my lavender shortbread cookies (addicting), and I have the lavender...yes, I most definitely will make this. (There, I talked myself into it..ha,ha).

    1. Haha, Jane! Good - I am glad you talked yourself into it. You deserve a little indulgence. :)
