    kennedyfish's Note:

    This is a bright pink / fuschia jelly made from fireweed blossoms. Fireweed is a bright pink wildflower native to Alaska. I've made this several years and it always turns out. I've used powdered pectin and liquid pectin with positive results. Taken from totallyalaska.com - I wanted to store this where I won't lose it!
