Did You Know You Could Make Pectin?

Yep, it is true- after a few weeks of searching I found this recipe!

2 pounds of small green apples or immature apples or crabapples
4 cups of water

  1. Wash apples trim bad parts, and slice very thinly. Place in large stockpot; add two cups of water for each pound of apples. Cover pan boil 15 minutes.
  2. Strain juice through cheesecloth. Do not squeeze pulp. Reserve the juice.
  3. Put the pulp back into the pan; add same amount of water. Cook 15 minutes over medium heat.
  4. Strain juices through cheesecloth, without squeezing the pulp. When pulp cools, you can press more juice from it.
  5. Heat stock to boiling point. Ladle into sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 " headspace. Remove air bubbles. Cap and seal.
  6. Process in water bath canner for 10 minutes.

Makes 1 1/2 cups.
