Violet Jelly

It is spring here and we are making violet jelly for the first time. Different than I expected but it is gfcf but definately not sugar free: My older son was so excited that he is going to take it to school tomorrow he also has conned me into trying a dandelion flavor next.

1 qt violet flowers (no stems) this is fun for the kids to do
fill the jar with boiling water and let set for 12 to 24 hours

when the water is added it is a ugly blue color never fear it will be pretty in the end

add 2c of violet juice to a pan
juice in 1 lemon (watch it turn pink)
add 1 box pectin and boil hard 1 minute

add 4 c. sugar and bring to a boil 1 minute

pour into hot jelly jars and process for 10 minutes
