How to Make Jelly..Redbud Jelly in the Spring
- Place 2 cups (up to 3 cups) of rinsed redbud flowers in a jar and just barely
cover with approx. 2 cups of boiling water. They will float, so push them down a
couple of times. Cover, let stand 24 hours. After they cool to room temperature,
stick them in the refridgerator. After 24 hours strain and discard the blossoms.
