Cissy posted 04-23-98 1 Rosemary Jelly 4-6 sprigs (about 2-3") fresh rosemary, snipped 1 1/4 cups boiling water 1/4 cup vinegar 3 cups sugar a few drops of green food coloring (optional) 1/2 bottle liquid fruit pectin (powdered won't work) Pour boiling water over rosemary. Cover and let steep 15 minutes. Strain. Measure 1 cup of the infusion and put into saucepan. Stir in vinegar & sugar. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Add food coloring (if using) and pectin, stirring constantly. Bring to boil again and boil 1/2 minute. Remove from heat, skim and pour into hot, sterilized jelly glasses (sterilize jelly glasses by pouring boiling water into them before starting jelly). I use 1/2 pint jelly glasses for this and it makes about 5 or 6 glasses.
