Thanks for the recipe. I have lived in AK for 6 years and have never done anything with the abundant fireweed. I love making jelly each summer, so decided to give this a try. My jelly did not set so I had to give it another try the following day with a second box of pectin and it turned out great. It tastes a little like cranberry jelly to me. We are really enjoying it. Thanks for the recipe.

I tried this and everybody i gave it to was in awe!! "It's a weed" they say, but after tasting it, they wanted the recipe. I was a little too late this summer and we had VERY hot weather, so I missed out. Darn it anyway. We just love it. I just entered in our local fair today, so I hope i get a blue ribbon.

The first jelly I've ever made! Easy to follow recipe and it came out beautiful and tasty! Was planning to send 3 of the jars to friends and family, but now that he's tasted it, hubby says "We're not sending this anywhere!"

My daughter and I made a couple of batches this summer and it was really good. We also dried the leaves for tea, also very good.

I loved this. I have enjoyed fireweed jelly from Alaska in the past and wanted to make a u.k. version. I used jam sugar with pectin in and I added a bit more lemon juice, it came out just like I remembered.
