Method of Mint Jelly

1. Cook apple and mint in water: Combine apple pieces with water and mint in a large pan. Bring water to a large pan and boil. Then reduce heat and cook until 20 minutes until soft.

2. Add vinegar and simmer: Now add little vinegar and return it to boil. Cover it 5 more minutes.

3. Mash apple pieces: You can use a potato masher to mash up the boiled apple pieces to a thin apple sauce. If you think the sauce is too thick, just add some water to it (1/2 to 1 cup).

4. Train apple mash in sieve or with cloth: Put the apple pulp into a muslin cloth to strain in a large bowl. Leave it for several hour, but don’t squeeze. After a few hours, about 4 cups of juice must be left out of mash.

5. Measure juice, add sugar, heat until sugar is dissolved: Measure the juice, then pour it into a large pot. Add sugar (7/8 cups for each cup of juice). Increase the frame, stirring to ensure that sugar is dissolved and do not stick or burn below of the pan.

6. Simmer until set point: Put it on oven to boil and make the heat medium flame or a little high from medium, which maintain a strong simmer. Use a metal spoon to stir the surface up-to 10-15 minute. I suggest to use a digital thermometer and keep notice on the temperature reached at least 8-10°F.

Depending on the amount of water, apple pectin and sugar in the mixture, this cooking process can need some additional timing like extra 10 minute to an hour or longer.

** Reading a thermometer is not always the best way to tell whether a jelly is done or not. Another way of testing is to make half a teaspoon of jelly on a freezer plate. Allow jelly to cool for a few seconds, then push it with your finger. If it wrinkles up, then it’s perfectly ready. When the mixture reaches 218°F, I usually start testing jelly.

7. Pour into canning jars and seal: Pour the mixture into sterilized jar (Canning jar). Make sure there is a ¼” gap from the top and also from seal.
