Honey Lemon Jelly Recipe

Honey Lemon Jelly Recipe

I love both honey and lemon, so I combined those ingredients into a doubly delightful jelly. Spread it on toast, bagels, English muffins or scones for a tangy breakfast treat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. Process: 5 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups honey
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 pouch (3 ounces) liquid fruit pectin

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine honey, lemon juice and peel. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin. Continue to boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 2. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into three hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
  • 3. Place jars into canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Yield: 3 half-pints.
