Make sure you have an expert with you mistake Queen Anne's Lace for, say, hemlock or snakeroot, both of which are poisonous!

Queen Anne's Lace Jelly

15 large flower heads
3 1/2 cups of boiling water

Place flower heads in boiling water, remove from heat, and allow to steep for fifteen minutes.

This yields 3 cups of infusion.

3 cups of infusion
3 3/4 cups of sugar
1 box of powdered pectin
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Add pectin to infusion and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar, all at once, and lemon juice, stirring over high heat. Bring to a full rolling boil for one minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, skim off foam, and pour jelly into sterile jars.
