Slight alteration in mine. Dh pigged out on the last of the currant jelly so I used raspberry jam and skipped the salt and pepper. I wussed out and used bottled unsweetened applesauce. I thought the vinegar was interesting in this, not something I would have thought to add myself. The mint was delightful and I'll try it from scratch when the weather is cooler because I know that it would be even better.
