Hi. Our local grocery store had buddha hands, at a really great price! I am candying them, according to David Lebovitz's recipe:
The people here:
said they would use the blanching liquid for jelly. Any recommendations on how to make buddha hand jelly would be highly appreciated.
Two further questions: would it be possible to can the candied buddha hand in syrup?
Also, does this guy look safe:

RE: Buddha hand jelly?

We're your fruit clean before you blanched? You don't want to use dirty blanching water.

Taste your blanching water. Do you like the taste? You can try adding a bit if sugar to a Tblsp of liquid - that will give you an idea of what the jelly will taste like.

What are your concerns with the recipe you posted. It's a basic marmalade recipe.

RE: Buddha hand jelly?

Thank you for answering. I don't know what the basic marmalade recipes are, so I just wanted to check that it is safe.
Now that I know it is, I am looking forward to making some.
