About Pineapple and Mint Jelly Recipe
I love canning and preserving fruit, making pickles, jams and jellies and having a difficult choice to make during breakfast and snack times when I am confused between what to have with my breads or desserts! The Fall season – September to November is the time when we get lovely ripe fruits and fresh herbs to preserve and make lovely accompaniments from. There are certain fruits which team up with certain spices and herbs and taste heavenly! Examples can be Mango and Cardamom, Apple and Cinnamon or Plums and Star Anise. The lovely juicy Pineapple is no exception and can be teamed up with fresh Mint to create a lovely Jelly which can be used on breads, toasts, bagels, muffins and over desserts like Ice Creams or Puddings. The combination is heavenly and the mouth feels so awesome after having a spoofull of this delicious jelly! The recipe is by Gina Steer who excels in Jams and Preserves! Many of you must be having this thought in mind – “Jellies are wobbly, gelatinous and soft desserts which melt in the mouth”! Jelly also refers to “a clear or translucent fruit spread or preserve” – Wikipedia! So this Pineapple and Mint Jelly is just that!

How to make Pineapple and Mint Jelly
My Tip:Use a ripe and big Pineapple for this recipe. Ripe Pineapples should be yellow in colour and have their wonderful characteristic aroma when smelt near the top stem. I used a green colour for the Jelly. You can use Yellow colour or keep it plain! For a more “herby” Jelly, Basil Leaves can be used which are snipped into small pieces. Measurement of sugar – For every 2 1/2 cups of Juice take 250 gms of sugar – granulated/powdered. The set test – If you have a Candy Thermometer, it should show 220 degrees. Or simply perform the plate test. Keep 2 small plates in the refrigerator once the Jelly starts boiling after adding sugar. After 15-20 minutes drop some liquid on the cool plate. If the liquid shrivels up like a “skin”, it is set! Measure all ingredients for this recipe!
