We found this recipe in The 1977 Old Farmer's Almanac, along with recipes for dandelion coffee, batter-fried dandelion blossoms, and a bunch of other dishes. Make in the spring!

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart of bright, fresh dandelion blossoms
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 package of powdered fruit pectin
  • 5 1/2 cups of sugar

Instructions:

Rinse them quickly in cold water and snip off the stems and green collars under the blossoms. Boil the petals in 2 quarts of water for 3 minutes. Cool and strain, pressing the petals with your fingers to extract all the juice. Measure out 3 cups of the dandelion liquid and place in a large jelly kettle. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 package of powdered fruit pectin (1 3/4 ounces). Bring the mixture to a boil. Add 5 1/2 cups of sugar, stirring to mix well. Continue stirring, and boil the mixture for 2-1/2 minutes. Pour into small glasses and cover with paraffin when the jelly is cool.
