This is the one I make, you can leave out the sherry if you like, but it does make it a bit special.I got the recipefrom some Woman's Weekly Recipe cards at least 20 years ago.It is a mint jelly.
½ cup finely chopped mint
1 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
½ cup medium or dry sherry
½ cup lime jelly crystals

Simmer sugar and vinegar for 3 minutes, add and dissolve jelly. Add mint and sherry.
Allow to partly cool, and pour into jars with lids and refrigerate.
Important: Stir and shake occasionally until set to prevent mint settling in bottom.

Thanks Scout_6001! If you omit the sherry (pregnant lady here!), should you make it up with an additional 1/2 cup of vinegar!

The one I make on the day, is the old-fashioned one where you just chop up some mint finely. Dissolve sugar in hot water. Add some vinegar to taste the way you like it.
Then add the chopped mint.

Thanks Jaez1 - do you have approximate measurements for vinegar/sugar etc! :-)

Hi Mctavi, when I omit the sherry, I make up the extra half cup with adding equal amounts of water and white vinegar.
