Canning:  Forsythia Jelly

 If you have forsythia at home you can make this simple forsythia jelly- which is sweet and lightly floral- and a beautiful yellow color!


  • 8-10 cups of forsythia blossoms
  • 4-5 cups boiling water
  • 4 cups of forsythia tea (if you don’t have enough, just add water to make this amount)
  • 3-5 T Lemon juice
  • 4 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 packet pectin (I find that liquid pectin gels better, but powdered works too)
  • Step by Step Directions
















      Place the blossoms in a large jar. I use our half-gallon mason jars. You can also split the blossoms into 2-quart sized jars. Pour the boiling water over the blossoms and allow to cool. Steep the flowers overnight in the refrigerator.

      Then using a coffee filter or cheesecloth, strain out the petals.






      Place the forsythia tea, lemon juice, and pectin in a large pot and bring to a rolling boil, stirring often.

      Add in the sugar and bring back to a rolling boil. Boil for 1-2 minutes stirring constantly.

      Remove from the heat and fill your jars to 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe the rims with a damp cloth and cap with canning lids.

      FJdoneThis jelly can be canned in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes to seal.

      You should get 6-7 half-pints from this recipe.
