Jelly can be made using Callicarpa Americana - American Beautyberry. It's all-American and easier than apple pie.

Thank you to everyone who enjoyed my little idea about the American Beautyberry Jelly.

It wasn't so much a recipe as a recipe for potential disaster, but to those who asked I used 4 1/2 cups of sugar to 3 cups of juice, the juice of one lemon (which I did not actually measure), one box of powdered Sure-Jell and less than 1/2 pat of butter. Please consult an actual recipe if you attempt this.

I gather the berries in the wild and from one neighbor's yard with permission, some time after they are ripe and before the mockingbirds eat them all. I only take my share and leave some for the birds.
