a sweet surprise

A heavy box arrived in the mail; I wondered what the heck I had ordered and then forgot about. Put on the glasses, only to see Beth's name on the package. What did she send me?

Several jars of homemade jams: rhubarb, strawberry, grapefruit!  And a grapefruit marmalade! But you know which one I opened first?

How cool is dandelion jelly!


  1. What a lovely, sweet surprise. Dandelion Jelly does sound rather good even if I've never tried it.

  2. How very special! I don't think I've ever heard of dandelion jelly! Thank you so much for your visits/comments to my blog. I am optimistic that the Internet connection snafu has now been corrected. We will see!

  3. I love sauteed dandelions in olive oil and a healthy squeeze of lemon. Is the jelly bitter? Happy feasting!

    1. No, not bitter at all. I believe Italians like dandelion greens served as you describe.
