When life gives you mint.

Flashback from the summer!

The mint from the garden was plentiful this summer!  This particular variety is called "Chocolate Mint" and it really does smell like it!

I tried to make mint jelly but I had no food colouring (when you boil mint it turns kind of brownish) and I added a lemon like the recipe said, but it ended up overtaking the taste so much that it ended up almost being an equal balance of both.  To cap it all off the jelly didn't set so now I have this kind of goopy sauce that I will be using as a glaze for some sort of meat in the near future.  Things don't always turn out the way you expect!  I am sure it will be delicious either way!

The Recipe:

2 cups chopped Mint (any variety)
2 cups water
3 1/2 cups sugar
1 lemon
1 package liquid pectin

*If you want to use less sugar make sure you choose "no sugar needed" pectin.
