Instructions for Chamomile Lemon Jelly

  • Cut the stem end off each lemon. Keep the blossom end intact, as it contains pectin that will help to thicken the jelly.
  • Slice each lemon as thinly as possible, preferably on a mandolin.
  • Place the slices in a large non-reactive saucepan and add 3 quarts water.
  • Set over medium heat and bring to a boil.
  • Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
  • in a separate pot add 4 cups water and 4 bags chamomile tea bring to a boil and shut off heat, allow to steep for at least 1 hour, (I always steep it for at least 3 hours).
  • after chamomile has steeped squeeze excess liquid from tea bags and discard.
  • bring back to a boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  •  stir in 1/2 cup liquid pectin.
  • remove from heat and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Remove lemon slices and fold in lemon zest.
  • transfer to container and refrigerate for another hour before serving.
