"Fresh Herb Jelly"

Yield: 32 Ounces


2 cups Water
3/4 cup Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 pk Powdered pectin (1 3/4 oz)
4 cups Sugar
1/4 cup Fresh chives, finely chopped
1/4 cup Fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup Fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup Fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup Fresh tarragon leaves, finely chopped


In a large saucepan, stir together the water,
lemon juice and powdered pectin.
Scrape the sides of the pan to make sure
all the pectin has dissolved.

Place the saucepan over high heat and
bring to a boil. Stir constantly to prevent scorching.
Add the sugar and herbs while stirring.

Bring the mixture to a full, rolling
boil 4 minutes, then remove from the heat.
Skim the foam off the top of the mixture
and pour into clean, sterilized jars.

Seal with parrafin, if desired, and
allow to set overnight.

If the herb jelly does not set overnight,
remove the parrafin and reheat the mixture over high heat.

Bring to a hard rolling boil 2 minutes,
repour into the jars, and reseal.
Because you are working with herbs and
not fruit, sometimes the pectin doesn't
react the first time and needs to be reboiled.
