      this is not my recipe but i made some corrections and it set just fine. I used 2 1/2 cups of apple juice, 1 1/2 cups of basil leaves chopped, 1/2 c cider vinegar, 5 1/2 cups sugar, 2 packets of liquid pectin. Bring 2 cups of apple juice to boil and pour over basil, let rest 25 min. strain, discard all but 1 tbsp. basil, and add 1/2 cup apple juice, vinegar, i did not use food colouring but added 1 tbsp. of basil. I also added 1/2 tsp butter as not to let mixture foam. Bring to a hard boil for 1 min. Remove from heat and add pectin. Reheat for about 30 sec. remove from heat and stir for 5 min. Pour into hot sterilized jars and attach lids and bands. Process 15 mins. in water bath> Mine have all sealed.

      When I first saw this recipe, I wondered what I could put this on. After I made it, I was amazed at the flavor. It will be good on anything. The only thing is Sue, is that you didn't say in your directions to when to put the pectin in. I put it in after the sugar melted and came to a boil and then boiled it again for another minuite. I wasn't for sure when to put it in. I'm not very experienced at jelly making. I hope this sets up good. If you would please go back and add in "when" to put in the pectin. I would love to make this again sometime. LeeAnn

      I know I am supposed to be writing a review - but I have not made this jelly yet. I was wondering what I would use the jelly for? Any suggestions?
