Still Room Recipes Herbal Jams and Jellies

Blackberry Jam

Holiday gift giving season will soon be here.  Gifts from the still room are in the planning.  Most years I stick to bath and body themed gifts- sugar scrubs, bath salts, tub tea.  But this year I am going to add herbal jams and jellies to the list. 

One of my favorite herb books, The Pleasure of Herbs by Phyllis Shaudys, devotes 5 pages in the October chapter to herb jellies.  With herb and juice combinations such as the following suggestions, I've got lots of options to try:

  • Mint/apple juice
  • Thyme/purple grape juice
  • Rose Geranium/apple juice
  • Orange Mint/apple juice
  • Lemon Balm/red grape juice
  • Lemon Thyme/white grape juice
In the spirit of Christmas, I think my first batch will be Cranberry, Orange, Ginger.  I'll let you know how this turns out.

It seems jam and jelly is a popular item this season, after I added jams and jellies to this year's gift list, and planned  this post, I got an email from  Mountain Rose Herbs and what does it contain?  Making Herbal Jam & Jelly!  I love the synchronicity! 

So who else is making herbal jams and jellies this season?  
I'd love it if you'd share a recipe with us.


Herbal Blessings,

Catherine
