  • I made this jelly on August 24, 2016 . I followed the recipe exactly. I used leaves from my Rose Scented Geranium plant. This jelly is delicious with a soft rose flavor. It gelled really well. I will make more of this jelly. It’s that good. Because of this recipe, I will now bring my rose geranium plants inside over the winter so I’ll be able to pick the leaves for more of this jelly. I’m giving a jar of to my closest friends for Christmas. What a great gift this will be. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
