This was tasty and so easy to do. No more mint jelly for me--usually the contents got thrown out before the jelly was finished. Such a waste. This made just the right amount for the two of us.

Love this simple sauce. Mint jelly is great but when you are in a hurry and don't have time to make jelly this is the recipe I go to.
