Gooseberry, Apple & Mint Jelly
This Gooseberry, Apple & Mint Jelly is a sweet and delicious, delicate jelly with a hint of freshness from mint. The apple flavor is enhanced by cider vinegar which makes it absolutely perfect with lamb. Make it now and save some for spring.
These are my top three tips for making this jelly recipe.
1. Do not peel or core the apples – leaving these in will help the jelly to set.
2. When the fruit is dripping over a container, do not squeeze the fruit or the jelly will be cloudy and not clear.
3. To check that the jelly is set, place a few saucers in the freezer to cool. These will be used to test if it is set.
