      Made this for lamb at Easter. Grandpa ate it on toast after Easter. Was a big hit. Didn;t have a jelly bag, so I used Cheese cloth. Kind of messy, but turned out perfect.

      I tried this recipe with Red Gala Apples (it's what I had). The color was lovely...a pretty rose color! It is a lot of work for mint jelly and I didn't like the taste much.

      This was very good. I cooked the apple first using only cores and peels(left overs from canning), then strained it and added the mint. It was delicious. I will be making more this week!
