    Kathy228's Note:

    This lime jelly is sweet with bursting lime flavor. I only make this when I can get the limes on sale. Don't use too much food coloring as it will look artificially green. Found this recipe on-line.

      Wow! I saw this recipe from Certo posted here and decided to try it. I am amazed by this recipe! This was both my first attempt at canning anything and my first try at making jelly. I used key limes in the recipe. I hadn't planned on adding any food coloring, but the juice mixture I ended up with was a yellowish-brown, unappealing color. I went ahead and added a drop of green food coloring, and the jelly ended up a very pretty light green color that looked so gorgeous in the jars. I found out that I enjoy the canning process; I loved the popping sound the jars made when they were sealing. Also, It was great watching the product slowly get to a jelly-like consistency when it was cooling in the sealed jars. I ended up with the 5 half pints the recipe said I would get. I think this is a great recipe for a first time jelly-maker like me. It was so much fun to do that I can't wait to make more! I just opened up a jar, and the jelly was so delicious. It was sweet and a bit tart from the limes, and it had a perfect consistency. Thanks so much for posting the great recipe!

      Had to come back and let you know I loved the lime so much and made this with lemon and it's also awesome. I did leave the lemon zest and pulp in this time and it added nice little flecks to the jelly.

      I needed a canning recipe to use up my key limes left over from making a key lime pie. I love how that little note of the food coloring was excatally right and and it set wonderfully. Thank you again for this great recipe!
