Mayapple Jelly Recipe

Yields enough to fill 4 small jelly glasses.

2 cups mayapple slices
3 cups water
1/8 cup lemon juice
3  1/2 cups sugar
3 ounces liquid fruit pectin

Wash ripe mayapples, then cut away stem and blossom ends, and any waste parts. Remove seeds. Cut fruit into pieces and place in large kettle with water to cover.



Bring to a boil, then simmer until fruit is tender, mashing during cooking.

Strain juice through cheesecloth (should result in at least 1  3/4 cups mayapple juice).
