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.
