Day 289/365 ~ the Kitchen is open for business

October 16, 2010

 

Success! I've conquered my first ever kitchen fear...home canning. Thanks to some really great YouTube videos, I finally took the leap. Boy, does this apple jelly taste yummy!

 

 

Boiled peels and cores to make the apple juice for the yummy jelly!

 

 

Yep. I opted not to spend the $20 on the fantastic peelers we've used in year's past. We peeled by hand this year. Katie was so delighted to have acquired this new skill and is still begging for the chance to peel the remaining apples in the basket.

 

APPLE JELLY and the APPLE BUTTER recipes were both fantastic. Now, I just have to perfect that art of getting the jelly to gel before sealing the jars. Oh well, apple syrup I think will quickly be a new favorite substitute to maple syrup.

    Did you not use pectin in the jelly…think that should work…been years since I attempted to make jelly…remember the grapes on the fence at Chipper…made jelly from them!

    You’re a brave woman peeling them all by hand! I couldn’t live without my apple peeler. It works great for pears too…we made a bunch of pear butter over the weekend.
