Basil jelly recipe?

vicki_mildenstein(5)August 31, 2010

I got some purple Basil Jelly at Wholefoods and I'd like to try some basil jelly myself.

It's very tasty.

Anyone have a recipe?

While I don't have purple basil I have loads of green so I'm hopeful that will work.

Check out the 'basil jelly' discussions linked below. Also several other recipes for basil are in the Greatest Hits thread of recipes.

Fancy Basil Jelly

1½ cups packed fresh anise, cinnamon, opal or lemon basil (choose one)
2 cups water
2 tbsp cider vinegar
pinch of salt
3½ cups sugar
3 oz liquid pectin

Wash and pat basil dry with paper towels. Chop finely and place in a large saucepan. Add water and bring slowly to a boil and boil for 10 seconds. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain and recover 1½ cups of liquid. Place in a saucepan and add vinegar, salt and sugar. Bring to a hard boil while stirring constantly. When boil can not be stirred down, add pectin. Return to a hard boil and boil for exactly 1 minute. Remove from heat, skim off foam and pour into hot jars and process for 10 mins in a BWB to seal.
