Ingredients
• 1 1/2 cups packed mint
• 3 cups water
• 2-3 drops green food coloring
• 1 package Mrs. Wages® Fruit Pectin Home Jell®
• 4 cups granulated sugar
Instructions
1. Wash mint stems and leaves. Crush or chop finely. Place mint in a
    saucepan and add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Remove from
    heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.

2. Strain through two or more thicknesses of damp cheesecloth. Add 2
    to 4 drops of green food coloring, if desired. This will yield 3 cups
    mint infusion to make jelly. Part of the infusion may be replaced with
    apple juice for variety.

3. Place measured juice or prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepan.
    Stir in Mrs. Wages® Fruit Pectin Home Jell®.

4. When mixture comes to a full boil, quickly stir in premeasured sugar
    amount. Stirring constantly, return to a full boil (a boil that cannot
    be stirred down) and boil for 1 minute. Do not overcook pectin as
    it may break down and prevent gelling. Mrs. Wages® Fruit Pectin
    Home Jell® requires sugar. Sugar is necessary not only for flavor,
    it preserves and aids in gelling. It is not recommended varying from
    recipe.

5. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Quickly ladle into hot jars.
    Leave 1/4-inch headspace at the top. Use a clean damp cloth to
    wipe any spilled jam or jelly from rims and threads of jars.
    Cover with hot lids and tighten rings firmly.

6. Set hot jars on rack in canner or large saucepot of boiling water.
    Water must cover jars by 1 or 2 inches. Cover canner and return
    to boiling. Boil for 5 minutes (begin timer when water has returned
    to a boil).

7. Remove canner from heat, remove lid and let jars sit 5 minutes in
    canner. Remove jars from canner, set on a clean towel or rack to
    cool.
