Honey Jelly Recipe
3 cups honey
1 cup water
1 (3oz) pouch pectin (liquid) (3/8ths cup / 6 tablespoons)
1. Add the honey and water to a pot and bring it to a boil that you cannot stir down.
2. Once to a boil, stir in the pectin and continue to stir for one minute.
3. Pour the mixture into sterilized canning jars and seal with new covers and sterilized lid rings.
4. Place the jars back in a water bath and process for 10 minutes*.
5. Remove from the canning bath and cool on the counter. The jelly will likely set quickly, but it is possible that it will take some time (overnight at minimum).
