Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan. Add pectin, and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Remove and discard mint leaves; skim off any foam.

  • Pour hot mixture immediately into hot, sterilized jars, filling to 1/4 inch from top. Remove air bubbles; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands.

  • Process in boiling-water bath 5 minutes.

  • Note: Jellies usually require only 5 minutes of processing because of their higher acid content.
