Rosemary Jelly

I just love having a special gift from my kitchen to give my friends and family for Christmas every year.  I also like having a little gift from the kitchen for hostess gifts and party favors.  This year I have a lovey gift of Rosemary Jelly.  This Jelly is the perfect color for the season and the sweet and savory flavor is fabulous.  We have lots of Rosemary in our gardens so it is truly from Garden to Table.  Hope you enjoy the jelly.
