Yes I can?

Robin recently posted a wonderful recipe for Rose Petal Jelly that I saw and immediately loved!  It looks so unusual and beautiful, and the hue of hers was fabulous.  I have never canned a single thing in my entire life. NEVER. But I wanted to do this.  My husband's grandmother loves unusual jellies, and this sounded like a great Christmas present idea.

So off I went to buy things associated with canning.

Canning for newbies

 And my favorite rose has lots and lots of buds just waiting to open.

I hope this goes well.... and maybe I can make Mimi's Dilly beans too! Happy Gardening!


  1. Good for you! I've never had rose jelly myself, but the colors are beautiful!

  2. I started canning last year. It's addictive and fun. Rose jelly sounds amazing.
