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.
A dab of this on a home-made scone--oooh, it's SO good! Thanks to Susan Branch for her creativity in her "Autumn" book--loaded with wonderful ideas to make autumn my NEW "favorite time of the year" (it used to be Spring).
Orange marmalade has long been a favorite spread for breads. However, marmalades are used not only as a sweet spread, but also as a main ingredient in a variety of breads and desserts as well as in sweet and savory sauces for meat, poultry, and vegetables.
This will bring the tropic to you! Serve it on bread, in a cake glaze a chicken or over cream cheese as a spread.
Love to see what you do with it!
Will make about 8-10 (8 oz) half pints for gift giving or about 160 servings, 1 Tbsp. each for your own consumption. ;)
A delicious preserve from the American heartland. From the Mississippi Valley chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. While this recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, it is perfectly safe if processed using modern methods.

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!
