flower jelly

Asked May 18, 2015, 7:30 AM EDT

I have heard that the basic National Center for Home Food Preservation recipe for dandelion jelly can also be made and safely water-bath-processed using other edible flowers. Is this true, and is there a link I can show others confirming this?

University of Wyoming Extension has a safe current tested bulletin on "Preserving Food in Wyoming - Wild Berries and Other Wild Fruit" that has included the recipe for dandelion jelly. Click on the publication here: http://www.wyomingextension.org/agpubs/pubs/B1210-3.pdf.

Be sure to avoid dandelions that have been sprayed with herbicides or pesticides, or exposed to other toxic substances.
