I found a recipe similar on all recipes, but I did not like how long it took to cooked down. I like chunky jam and do not like to stand at the stove that long. So I changed it to use pectin instead. Cooking time has canning time added, but does not count the 1 hour soaking.
This is a beautiful golden, clear, delicate, tasting jelly. Avoid the bitter milk in the flower stems, and any green parts it is UNPLEASANT! Great for gift giving. If you want to add more color add a couple drops of yellow. I found no need.
Recipe #101039 is fabulous in this recipe used as the sugar or add a vanilla bean to the 3 cups of dandelion liquid for vanilla flavor.
May 2011-I did a sun tea approach. I put the flowers in a large jar added 3 cups hot water and placed in the sun then left at room temperature for 24 hours. Strained then proceeded with the recipe.
This recipe is from a family friend living in Mexico. This is a canning recipe and requires hot sterile jars to save the jelly in. Make this ahead of time and have it ready for gift giving time. You will find that everyone will be wanting some of this delicious jelly. If you want a mild jelly, leave the seeds out. If you leave the seeds in, then it probably is a jam and not a jelly.
This is great! Something different to do with an abundance of fresh garden zucchini. The pineapple-apricot combo is really a nice change of pace. Gift from a Dear 86 year old LADY! Easy too. Great gift idea.
With all my zucchinis in the garden after make my habanaro jam I did some research and came up with this one.Try this on a grilled tuna steak, grilled chicken, toss some into a salad dressing or spread on some cream cheese.... You can peel and add yellow food coloring for eye appeal. I myself like the nutrition of the skin.
I came up with this sweet and spicy jam after picking goodies from my garden and looking at Recipe #95600 which I posted 4 years ago. Had home growing Habaneros so added and what more do I need to say?
This would be great served over a grilled chicken or fish.
I needed some pineapple preserves to make Ang1102's Recipe #168803. No problem I thought, I'll just pick some up at my corner store. No luck, They didn't have any so I thought no problem, I'll just get a recipe off of zaar. No luck!, I went on a search and was attracted to this recipe because it only uses 2 ingredients and looked easy. Boy did I get lucky with this one! From Food Down Under. EDIT: Thanks to Diana, I was able to change the title to award winning! Check her review for making these preserves even better!
This is just lovely served over vanilla ice cream or pound cake. This gets better the longer it sits and steeping time is not included in preparation time. It's also useful as a preserve. From the Creole chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
