~ Wild Violet Jelly ~

4 cups of Wild Violet infusion ~ 4 cups of petals infused with 4 cups of boiling water overnight

1/4 cup lemon juice ( fresh or bottled )

5 cups sugar

1 pkg of sure-gel

Pour violet infusion into a 6 or 8 qt stainless steel pot , add lemon juice , stir mixture well. Add 1 pkg of dry sure-jel , bring to a boil that will not stop as you stir , add 5 cups of sugar. Let it come to a rapid boil again , stir for 1 minute during rapid boil. Remove from heat , let it cool for about 5 minutes or so , skim foam off top. Ladle into sterilized jars , wipe rims and put lids on , process in hot water bath for 5 minutes. It will make 7 - 1/2 pints of jelly. I use the same recipe for Dandelion jelly.
