Turk's Cap Jelly

440

The Turk’s Cap plant. is often used as an ornamental in many gardens because it grows well in sun or shade. Historically the plant had many purposes. Medicinally the flowers and leaves were used to treat digestive upset and in some cultures still is. The leaves and flowers could be used as a dye for yarns producing a lovely red. What caught my interest was the fruit which could be used to make syrup or jelly, learning this I just had to try it. I am happy to say Turk’s Cap jelly is very good.
