Jelly Recipe

2 C (500ml) Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice, strained (about 13 lemons)
1 C (250ml) Water
1 C (250ml) Pure Honey, I like to use orange or clover honey
3 1/2 (700g) Sugar (use exactly this amount do not alter)
1 box Powdered Fruit Pectin (box= 1 3/4 oz 52.5g)
1 T Poppy Seeds

Start to process the jars using the hot bath method. See included information on the canning jars or above
in the recipe information.

In a large nonreactive pot, over medium high heat, combine the lemon juice, water, honey and fruit pectin.

Bring to a rolling boil stirring as needed to dissolve and incorporate the pectin.

Once the lemon mixture is boiling and the pectin is dissolved, add all the sugar and bring the mixture back to a boil.

Boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.

If you like skim off the foam on the top of the jelly.

Stir in the poppy seeds.

Using tongs, remove a jar from the hot water bath and ladle in your beautiful jelly to 1/4 inch from the top
of the jar. A canning funnel really helps in this step and they are inexpensive.

Wipe the mouth of the jar and place the seal firmly on top and then screw on the ring.

Place the sealed jar back in the hot water bath.

Repeat for all the jars until you have canned all your jelly.

Process (bring the hot water bath back to a boil) the jars for another 15 minutes.

Now you are just about done!

Remove the jars from the hot water bath and turn them upside down on a dish towel for 15 minutest to cool. As
the jars are cooling shake them every few minutes. This makes the poppy seeds spread evenly through out the jelly.

Turn the jars up and let cool over night. The next day check which jars sealed and which did not. The center
circle of the seal will make a clicking sound when pressed if the jar did not seal. If some or all of your jars did
not seal all is not lost.

The jars that sealed will have a shelf life of 1 year, if they last that long. The jars which did not seal will keep
up to 3 months in the refrigerator.

The jelly should be refrigerated after opening and will last 3 months after opening.

You can help your kids celebrate Mardi Gras by making up easy Mardi Gras Masks. For this you’ll need:

o Construction paper in several colors

o Scissors

o Glitter

o Glue sticks

o Markers or crayons

o Some loose craft feathers

o Straws

o Tape

These will be those half masks that you hold up to your face. First have the kids each pick out a piece of construction paper in the color that they like. Then, help them draw the outline of the half mask that they want and help them cut it out. Don’t forget to put eye holes in the right spots.

Once the kids have the construction paper masks cut out they can start decorating them. They can put drops of glue around the outside of their masks and line them with the fluffy colored feathers. The kids can also spread a thin layer of glue on their masks and sprinkle glitter on them. Let the glue dry and shake off the excess glitter for a sparkly feather mask.

You can create an eyeliner effect on the masks by carefully outlining the eyeholes with the marker. You can also draw in whiskers, freckles or any other design that you like on the masks.

To attach your half masks to their holders simply tape one end of a straw to one side of the half mask. If you want you can decorate the straw too by covering it in a thin layer of glue and rolling it in the glitter before you tape it to the mask.

You can also get more involved in the making of your Mardi Gras masks by getting some plastic beads and sewing them to the masks in elaborate designs. Try stringing up a row of beads and tacking them to the outside rims of the masks like a garland.
