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.

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!

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!

The last time I went shopping for mint jelly I gave up after 4 grocery stores. So with my abundance of mint this year I gave this recipe a try. I LOVE IT! I love mint jelly and horseradish with my pork roast and this jelly was perfect!!! Thanks now I don't have to search the whole city for my mint jelly, This recipe was so simple, and so pretty. Thank you again.
