I have a tangerine tree so I decided to make some jelly...I used this recipe and everyone who sampled it just LOVES IT. Yum...I am going to make some more and give them out with Christmas gifts. Thanks
I made a double batch and instead of 5 half-pints I got 7 per batch. A pleasing result. I used the lemon pulp and I guess my mandarins were very sweet because I didn't experience the lemon tartness that others mentioned.
I just made this jelly, and i think it has a strong lemon over tone to it. I will make another batch in a few days, but i plan to change the recipe from lemon plup to lemon juice. And I got 8 jelly jars instead of the 5 jars it says it makes.
This is a delightful mix of sweet & tangy. It did take a little bit longer to set up (about 36 hours before all the 1/2-pint jars were fully set) but they sealed with no problem and taste wonderful!
Made this for the first time today and it came out perfect and tastes so wonderful! I can't thank you enough for posting! This will be a recipe I will use for life and pass on to friends. Bravo!
I used manderin oranges at that time. It was very fresh tasting. Not like the sore bought kind. But now that I can buy tangerines I will try this recipe again. I love tangerines! Will let you know my results.
Great recipe. I omitted the zest as I don't like it and still turned out awesome. Great color and slight tart taste! Would recommend.
I had absolutely NO luck with this recipe. I made it the first time and it didn't set up at all. I waited 5 days, opened the jars and poured it back into a pan, brought it to a boil, and added 2 additional packages of pectin. Boiled again. Resealed in clean jars. It is still syrup in the jars. I am very disappointed with this expensive & time consuming mistake. It has a lovely flavor and is a beautiful shade of orange, but it is not jelly. I see by other's reviews that the recipe was successful for them. I hope it will be for others as well.
I made this to use as additional goodies for gift baskets at Christmastime. Well, after tasting it--it has a light refreshing citrus punch to it...and seeing it in the jars--it is a pale orange color but also vibrant (if that makes any sense), I don't know if I want to give them away or not. ;) I had trouble getting the 4 cups of juice so I added about half a cup of water to the juice. I ended up getting 6 half pint jars of this jelly. Great recipe and I'll be making more of it.
This is my first Jelly making attempt. Hubby and I are very pleased with the results despite my extreme inexperience (I panicked when the jars starting popping after I removed them from the waterbath. I left the kitchen and waited 5 mins before returning to check on them) and putting the pectin in at the wrong time, the jelly came out great! Got 5.25 half pints and gave away 2 jars already! Used Sure Jell. Thanks for posting it, Di!
