Well, it's a beautiful color and the lemon juice was not too much as I had thought it might be. Unfortunately, it was way too sweet for me even though I added quite a bit less sugar to start than the recipe called for. I also am disappointed that the lavender flavor is so subtle. Lastly, I did end up using extra pectin (as mentioned). So, next time I will adjust; especially the amount of lavender. I really want to TASTE it.
I made this as one of the flavours of jellies to be used as my wedding favour. I absolutely love this and am shocked at how delicious it is! I found 4 cups of sugar to be too much so I used around 3 cups. Thank you for a great recipe, it is sure to be a hit!
This is excellent!. I did use a bit extra pectin at the end and that is a wonderful tip for making other jellies. The flavor and consistency of this jelly is far superior to the jelly I paid $9 a jar for this summer. I did add a few drops of red and blue food coloring to come up with a nice lavender color. Fast, easy and wonderful Thanks!
Oh BecR I LOVE this recipe, I'd saved it a long time ago and just remembered I wanted to make it. Your directions are so clear. The only thing I did different was use 1 1/2 lemons as mine were pretty small, almost the size of limes. I did have to add an extra 1/2 box of pectin as you noted in the bottom (thanks for that tip) This not only looks pretty but has a lovely sweet taste, with just a hint of lavender and lemon in the background. It made the exact amount you stated and I can't wait to share this with family and friends. This is a keeper. I'll be back to post pictures, my camera is currently MIA but should have it back soon.
