Thinking about some "wild" jellies today! I love wildcrafting. Who doesn't love free, interesting food?

First recipe to share - Queen Anne's Lace jelly. I haven't made this in years, but I recently stumbled across a recipe for it, and now I want to make it again!

I will also be dyeing some silk and maybe wool with Queen Anne's lace, as soon as I get some more alum. (Alum is a mordant - makes the color stay).

And I like this recipe for Spearmint-infused crabapple jelly. Although I do love rosemary, or sage, with crabapples...our crabapple tree at the shop is starting to drop fruit, that's when I know they are ready to pick!
