I was out the other day and ordered a lamb slider, it came with a side of mint jelly. Oh, those were the old days..... mint jelly!

Memories came rolling back to me, when I grew up my parents would buy mint jelly for me. I really enjoyed it on burnt, ah...well done white bread toast. My parents didn't mind buying it, as it was really inexpensive compared to more main stream jams, we didn't have much back then. Then I just moved on and liked more traditional flavors, grape, orange marmalade, strawberry etc. Mint jelly was far removed from my breakfast fare.

Any of you hounders have fond, or not so fond memories of mint jelly??
