Thanks, Cindy! Do you have any recipes for anything to do with mesquite flowers? Or is this a kind of all around approach for flower jellies?

I don't know anything about mesquite flowers, never heard of them. I'll check out some recipes later. Most of these flower jelly recipes have different about of sugar to infusion ratio.
