    I recently bought a jar of garlic parsley jelly that was to die for, how can I incorporate the parsley. Should I use it raw or perhaps put boiling water over it? Thanks

    This is pretty much the same recipe I have used for several years. Everyone loves it. Don't forget to use the butter, if you forget you end up with a jar that looks like a urine sample! No lie!

    This is my most requested treat! Since I started cooking, garlic has been my most noted & favorite ingredient. The family joke is I cook everything with garlic in it. I made a variety of jellies one year for Christmas gifts. There was the far too often upturning of the nose at the thought of garlic jelly! Once folks tasted the stuff on crackers, with cream cheese, they loved it! My addition to the recipe is adding 1/4 cup red pepper flakes to each batch so the jelly was very pretty. Food coloring is optional, if the jelly is too dark, you can't see the flakes. Add the flakes after boiling the jelly for a mild hint of heat. Boil the flakes in the jelly for some real kick. I have made several batches using Apple Cider Vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. The cost savings means tons more jelly for sharing.
