Let’s Talk about Mint Jelly

A brief of tour my brain.
I was thinking about spring, which made me think about planting my front yard, which made me think about deer deterrence, which made me think about mint, which reminded me I wanted to post about mint jelly.
I cannot think of anything more disgusting, maybe green jello, which might as well be the same thing. I will give a pass to naturally made mint jelly and its fancy cousin (I’m looking at you mint chutney.) But the processed in a jar food coloring dye based food is just inedible.I reserve eating things that color for once a year on St. Patrick’s Day, and even then they tend to be booze or cake related.
This made me ask where did it start? A quick search of the internet let me down, but I need to know this people! Think about the boring conversations I could get out of while simultaneously showing people up.
Meat in short demand was often a little rancid, mint being a strong flavor hides this.
But seriously does anyone know where mint jelly originated?
