So this year I decided it would be fun to make some wonderful crab apple
jelly sauce for Christmas presents.
Below are step by step instructions for crab apple
Step one: Pick the apples and put them in a pot. Contrary to popular opinion these suckers don’t hop off the tree into a basket. If you wait for them to fall they get really nasty!
Don’t forget to stir. Burnt mush could ruin the flavor of your
Step three: Strain the mush!
Jelly sauce is great with little chunks of apple in it but leaves and stems sort of ruin the experience.
Step five: Totally disregard the instructions on the pectin box and add all the sugar (9 cups to 7 cups of apple mush) before you add the pectin. Bring to a rolling boil.
Step six: Add your pectin and boil for one more minute making the pectin totally ineffective.
Step seven: Ladle the mush into jars. Close the tops and put in your hot water bath for 10 minutes.
AND TADAHHHH! YOU HAVE PERFECT APPLE
JELLY SAUCE! 🙂
