Mint jelly was super yummy, especially when spread on crackers with cream cheese.
I was reading in my new soap making book about all the yummy smelling soap recipes that you can make with dried mint. I read in my homesteading book about different types of teas that are made with dried mint. I am not sure when, or what, I want to try to make with the mint next, but there was a common step that all of them had. Dry the mint. So we did. :-)
We let it hang to dry for about two weeks.
Then the girls went to town crushing it...
And then putting it in jars.
This was such a fun little project that took very little time, and no money. That makes it a winner in my book for sure!
