Jalapeno Mint Jelly

"My mother sent me a plant that apparently had mint with it and now it has taken over a small part of my flower beds. Looking for something to do with it all I came upon this jelly. This makes a small batch and comes from "Small Batch Canning" by Topp and Howard."

directions

  • Bring 1 1/2 cups mint and water to a boil in a small saucepan. When I am in a hurry I do not "finely" chop the mint at this point. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 30 minutes to steep. Strain through a lined sieve pressing with the back of a spoon to extract as much liquid as possible; discard mint.
  • Combine mint liquid, sugar, vinegar, lemon juice and peppers in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a full boil over high heat and boil hard for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in pectin and remaining finely chopped mint.
  • Ladle into sterilized jars and process in water bath for 5 minutes or pour into jars and invert for 5 minutes. Turn back and you should hear the seals pop close.

    I prepared an infusion ahead of time when I cleared out overgrowth in my mint garden. So, what would you suggest as a measurement to use in recipe for the infusion? 2.5 cups?

    Shouldn’t it be 3 oz pouch of pectin

    Came out perfect. I used a 3oz package of liquid pectin. . Made two batches the first one with jalapeños and the second one with habaneros. ..

    Fail! Jelly did not set, so I added more Certo. I will give it 24 hours, but I am not hopeful. My advice? Find another recipe ��

    I'm not likely to find a cure for cancer (unless it can be found in my kitchen) nor ever invent anything, but I can make jelly. Loved the addition of mint.
