This recipe was given to us by Mrs. Jeanette Shelor of Meadows of Dan, Virginia. We haven't tried it but thought our readers might like it.
Boil sassafras roots one hour and strain. Measure 2 cups of this tea into a pan. Add a package of powdered pectin and just barely bring to a boil. Add 3 cups of honey (without comb) and 2 tablespoons of sassafras roots bark that has been grated to a fine powder. Simmer 6 minutes. Put into sterilized glasses and cover with melted paraffin wax.
