    Really good and super easy. Never used liquid pectin before and it set really well. I will definitely be making a lot more. I didn’t grate the lemon peels either. Still came out great.

    Easy and delicious. Will try with some candied ginger added next time.

    I also used bottled lemon juice, and a box of powdered pectin. Everybody really liked it. I drizzled some into my tea this afternoon and it was really yummy! I made 2 batches, and got 6-4oz jars, and 2 pints. Very easy, will be making this again.

    I made this, but did not have the fresh stuff. I used lemon juice that I keep in the frig. and used lemon peel. All my friends loved it. I will use it again. I am looking for more jelly/jam recipes made w/honey. This was so easy to make. Thank you for posting it.
