MINT JELLY
• 8 Tbsp sugar (I used a little less)
2 cups white wine vinegar (I used 1 3/4 white wine, 1/4 malt for depth of colour)
1 packet lime jelly crystals
1/2 cup sherry
30 mint leaves, chopped
good handful of finely chopped rosemary leaves
Heat vinegar, sugar and jelly crystals until sugar dissolved. Add sherry, mint and rosemary.
Pour into very clean, oven-heated jars. Top with boiled lids.
(This will fill three smallish jars at approx total cost of $6 each.)
Cool, then refrigerate. Shake vigorously every half hour or so to distribute herbs.
Probably pay to keep it in the fridge.

Bring the vinegar, water and sugar to the boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Boil for a few minutes. Sprinkle the gelatine over a little cold water, let stand for a few minutes to soften, then stir it into the vinegar mixture until it is dissolved. Add the mint.I also add a few drops of green food colouring. Remove from the heat and allow to cool, but not set. Spoon into small, clean jars and cover.
