9 cups of Dandelion tea
12 cups of Stevia or other sugar alternative
6 Tablespoons of lime juice
3 boxes of powdered pectin
You make the Dandelion tea by adding the yellow flower of the Dandelion to a pot. Add as many cups of HOT water, as you have Dandelions. Cover pot, let sit overnight. Sometimes I let it sit for a couple of days. The longer it sits, the stronger the tea will be. It should have a yellow to light brown tint when complete
Add Dandelion tea, lime juice and pectin in sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Add sugar. Make sure sugar gets blended into completely. Otherwise, it will stick to bottom of your sauce pan and burn. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat. Add to jars. make sure you leave 1/4 inch of space from the top.
You can process these in a water bath for 10 minutes. Or process for 10 minutes if you are under 6000 feet elevation. 15 minutes if you are over 6000 feet elevation.
Now I let the jelly set for 48 hours to jell up before using. Jelly must be refrigerated once opened.
I made 36 small jelly jars.
