A wildcraft revolution!!
Since mentioning I was making dandelion syrup and rose petal jelly on here and facebook, people have been bombarding me with questions! I love it!
So far, two friends are in the middle of making their dandelion syrup. A woman here in Faro was making rose petal syrup today. And Sarah, The Yukon Musher up in Dawson, is going to try her hand at the rose petal jelly too!
If you are trying this too let me know how it goes! And feel free to ask me questions.
I had a problem with three of four batches of my rose petal jelly, so I called the jelly making trouble hotline! Yes, there is such a thing! I used powered pectin for those three batches and they went cloudy and a bit gritty. The woman on the hotline told me I can re-boil, add some liquid pectin and throw them into the jars again. Spiffy! If you are using the recipe I linked on my other post, use the liquid pectin (certo) instead. So I am going to do that tomorrow. Tonight I have another double batch of dandelion syrup on the stove almost ready to be bottled.
