A couple weeks ago we went berry-picking. I picked blueberries and raspberries this day.
But in addition to berries…I picked a pot full of fireweed blossoms.
The poor flowers!
I tossed the blossoms and kept the "tea" and added the pectin, sugar, and other things…
And a few minutes later, processed some jars.
Jennifer watching the lids go "Pop!"
And finally, I had 12 half-pints of fireweed jelly!
If you have fireweed in your area, give it a try sometime! Now, I did a double batch, but you can do what you like. You can find the recipe over at "At Home on the Last Frontier."
