Mr. Coral and I have been going back and forth on the idea of wedding favors. On the one hand, they’re a nice touch. On the other hand, nobody really wants something with OUR names and wedding date on them. Except maybe a koozie, but since we aren’t serving anything bottled, those are out. We thought back to weddings we’ve been to and our favorite favors were always the edible ones. Surprise, surprise, I know. But edible favors can be a little treat to take home or to the hotel room, then you eat them, then you throw out the wrapper (or container) and move on with your life. No guilt to hoard, no junking up the house.
One idea I’ve seen heavily online is homemade jelly as a favor. I’ve been wanting to try to make homemade jelly and saw this as the perfect opportunity. Raspberries have been really cheap around here lately (three for $5), so I grabbed some this weekend and found the easiest recipe ever.
I was slightly nervous about this being an epic fail, so I decided to make a very small batch. This couldn’t have been easier!
