[size=32]Maypop Jelly[/size]


The jelly was great, sort of reminds me of apricot/marmalade type flavor sort of a citric taste. Mine came out a tad thin like honey but I decided to leave it be. I love it in my tea and on toast with butter or cream cheese. I guess it would be pretty good on a hot roll with butter like you would use honey.



MayPops Jelly

  • 4 cups ripe maypops, sliced
  • 1.875 cups water (2 cups light)
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 1 package pectin that is 1.75 oz



Combine the Maypops and water in a 3 quart saucepan and boil gently for 5 minutes. Strain through a colander pressing to extract as much juice as you can. Toss the skins and seeds (throw away.) 


Combine the liquid and sugar and bring to a full rolling boil. Add the pectin and again bring to a full boil. 
Check temperature 220°F with a candy Thermometer.


Remove from heat, pour into hot sterilized jars 1/4" headspace, top with hot lids and seal.


Makes 5 pints.
Folks that made tis recipe stated that this came out a tad loose at 1/2 package but a full package it was too thick.


Mine came out too thin, like honey,but I went heavy on the water 2.125 cups, I will try it next time a little shy of two cups.






  • Collected Maypops and tossed in the freezer as they became ripe.
