If your family is into foraging to supplement and add to your pantry shelves check out this recipe for canning foraged dandelion and forsythia jelly. Look at that beautiful color. Would you love to see this gold gleaming back at you from your pantry shelf. Mixed in with the berry and grape colors it would look like a shelf full of the most colorful gems.
If you have forsythia in the yard and dandelions that haven’t been sprayed with weed killer and other nasty chemicals then you can just wander out to the yard and gather what you need to make this gorgeous jelly. If not maybe you can find a friend or relative that has them. The recipe also calls for vanilla bean and honey so it is going to be very tasty and it will look so pretty on toast or biscuit. Make lots and save a few jars to gift at Christmas. This recipe doesn’t call for sugar but it does call for good honey and preferably raw honey. This recipe is from Homestead Lady
