    I make this every year. I even throw in extra mint for even more flavour! Better than anything you can buy. A great product to share with friends! Goes great with chicken too, as well as lamb.

    Very tasty with Lamb,of course, but also to add to frozen peas when I microwave them. I omit the food colouring, as it does not add anything to the flavour. Tip for jellymakers from another family jellymaker. We use fresh,new,and washed knee-high panty hose. Tie a knot in toe to give more strength and not have a "jelly disaster" in the kitchen. Have made red &black currant, nanking cherry, Crabapple/rose hip jellies with your liquid certo products. My friends and I enjoy them greatly Thanks Cicely
