  1. Make a strong infusion by pouring the boiling water over the parsley. Let stand for 15 minutes. Strain out bits of parsley, and reserve liquid in a glass or stainless steel saucepan.
  2. Stir the honey and vinegar into the parsley water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the pectin, and continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from heat, and skim off any foam from the top. Transfer to sterile jars, and seal in a hot water bath.

Very interesting. Not much parsley flavor though. Kids loved it on bread though...a bit on the tart side for me. I used powdered pectin instead of liquid and it seems to work fine.

I do like the flexibility of this recipe, being able to use all types of delicious herbs from my garden. The only issue that I had, after multiple attempts, was getting this to jell adequately....
