Pinterest is Dangerous!

October 21st, 2019 at 12:59 pm

This morning I was just nosing around Pinterest. I am having to take a break from knitting and crocheting. I was crocheting last night and my fingers started to hurt and then later my shoulder was sore which is my body's way of telling me I've overdone it. Usually if I take it easy for a day or so and don't knit or crochet, I'm OK.

Anyway, I was looking at Pinterest because I had already read all the current blogs and saw a small recipe for Lavender Jelly. We just happen to have some lavender plants that DH hasn't gotten rid of yet (they are in pots) and I asked him if he minded if I cut off the blooms to make some jelly. He said no, he was going to get rid of the plants anyway. I had used some earlier to make all purpose cleaner with vinegar and Dawn so he's used to me using stuff.

Anyway, I have four small jars of jelly. Hope it turns out. It didn't seem like an overwhelming activity and I had the jars, sugar, pectin, and lemon juice.

    Sometimes that happens to me with You Tube. I'll take a break from cleaning or cooking and find an interesting video on budgeting or frugal living and before I know it an hour has gone by!

    I love Pinterest, that was where I got the idea to redo my patio inexpensively.
    May I ask, what is lavender jelly?

    Wink, I totally get it! Some of these things are addictive!

    Amber, lavender jelly is made with lavender blooms, sugar, water, lemon juice and pectin. Here is the recipe: https://thehomesteadsurvival.com/fresh-lavender-jelly-homemade-flower-recipe-canning/

    Have you made it before? Does it have much taste besides the sweetness? Now, we are all curious!😊

    Thanks, I’ll try it

    Carol, I tried it last night. It really barely tastes of lavender, just mostly sweetness.
