The dandelion juice may be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days if you do not have time to make jelly immediately.

I was given a jar of this jelly over 30 years ago with the recipe by one of my best friends. For several years we made this together for our families. When her children no longer wanted it I started making it for my family and friends. Even now, my grown children ask me to make this for them. This is a favorite of theirs.

It tastes like a mix of apple jelly and honey to us.
