    I grew up picking wild blackberries for my Granny, Aunts, and Mom who made jelly with them and boy do I miss it. My Aunt lives in Chickamauga and that is where my Mom was raised. Every summer we got to pick them and watch them make the jelly and those were the best times

    Yes jelly time it is! My DD and I picked 3 gallons of Dewberries/Blackberries this weekend. I use the recipe in the sure-jell box. I have mixed it with grape or plum which turns out nice my DS loves the Blackberry-grape. It is so much fun making jelly. I have seen recipes for the rose petal jelly....I'll see if I can find it for you.

    found this one on line.

    Rose Petal Jelly

    Pick roses early in the morning as soon as dry from the dew. Do not use roses that have been sprayed with insecticide. Use 6 or 7 roses for one jar.
    Remove petals very carefully by pulling petals away from stem. Cut petals above the white ends.

    Blend 1 cup roses petals, 3/4 cup water and the juice of one lemon until smooth.

    Gradually add 2 1/2 cups sugar. Blend until sugar is dissolved.

    Stir 1 package Sure-Jel in 3/4 cup water and bring to boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Start blender and add hot solution. Blend at low speed until thoroughly mixed.

    Pour into hot sterilized jars and refrigerate until used.

    I'm jealous! It'll be August before we get any blackberries. Heck, we don't even get strawberries for a few more weeks!
