Easy mint recipe. I did not add the food coloring and instead added about 2 chopped jalapenos for heat. Tasty. Thanks!
I have an abundance of mint this year, and only need so much for tea. So I searched for a good recipe for mint jelly. This is absolutley wonderful. I made plenty for my family and a lot of extra for gifts. I added more mint than called for. Loved it! I will definatley use this one again and again. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice jelly. Nice consistency and flavor. This is a winner.
This is the best mint jelly I have ever had. I skipped the food coloring but otherwise followed the recipe precisely, starting with picking the mint from the garden. Without the coloring it is a pale golden sort of green and has a clean, rich mint taste, almost honeyed. I used tiny 4 ounce jars--so pretty and perfect little gifts (although it is so good not that much will be given away). And did I mention how easy this is? Thanks, Chabear!
Wonderful, dead-easy recipe. I was feeling a little worried after my frustrating experience with some crab apple jelly I made last night (too sweet, and then after fixing that, it refused to gel until I FINALLY resorted to pectin), but this worked up beautifully, despite my being an amateur. I forgot to measure the juice after I strained it, and had a bit more, (five jars and a bit instead of four), and had to add a teaspoon and a half of mint extract at the end because I didn't have enough leaves (my whole patch of peppermint came from one plant given to me three years ago, and this is the first year using it) but it still gelled fine and tastes great.
Easy and tastes great! I used the pink box of Sure Jell pectin, it always sets perfectly!
Made 2 doz jars of this last night...perfect!! The taste is great and it was easy. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
Oh my gosh this as fantastic jelly and couldn't be any easier to make, I'm thinking for the next batch of adding in a bit of heat?? anyway this is a great recipe and one I will make again, thanks for posting Char, this was made for KK's forum tag game
Wow! This was beyond easy to make and taste fantastic too. The cost is a fraction of what you would pay in the store so a bargain all around.
What a wonderful recipe! Years ago, I made some mint jelly with an apple juice base for my mother, who loves lamb. This Christmas, she asked for more. I really did not want to use a recipe with apple juice, so was delighted to find this one. Because it is December (and we have had an ice storm!), I had no fresh mint, but I had dried plenty this fall, so I used about 1/2 cup packed dried mint leaves for the infusion-it worked fine! I just tried a tad, and it is fantastic. Thanks so much!
