Red Clover Jelly/Honey

Infusion:

5 cups white wine or apple juice (apple juice really changes the flavor to taste just like apple jelly, so I use the wine, which really brings out the natural clover flavor) 
2-3 cups red clover (flower top only)
in a glass bowl

Bring wine or juice to a boil, and pour over the clover. Cover and let steep overnight.

Strain and reserve liquid.

For the jelly:

4 cups infusion
8 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
6 oz liquid pectin

The result!! Amazing!!

Combine infusion, sugar and lemon juice in a pot over high heat. Bring to a boil.
As soon as sugar has dissolved, add pectin.
Return to a rolling boil for 1 minute.
Skim foam and pour into prepared jars, 4 or 8 oz only, water bath for 20 minutes.

I replaced liquid pectin with an equivalent amount of powdered. It turned out more like a honey consistency, which drizzles nicely over bread, waffles, ice cream! Enjoy!

**Make sure you only forage for clover in areas that haven’t been sprayed with any chemicals**
