    • Apple Pie Jelly

      Enhance your morning toast with this delectable Apple Pie Jelly recipe! A great way to get delicious fall flavors without having to heat up the entire house.

      You'll Need:

      4 c. Apple Juice
      1 Tbs Maple Syrup
      5 c. Sugar
      3 tsp. Cinnamon
      1 tsp. Nutmeg
      1 Box powdered pectin


      Place apple juice, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg in a heavy saucepan.

      Add the pectin and bring to a hard boil over high heat until it dissolves into the juice. Slowly stir in the sugar and bring back to a rolling boil over high heat.

      Boil for one full minute (if you use a candy thermometer to be exact, it should read 220 degrees !)

      Remove from heat and skim off foam with a metal spoon.

      Pour into jars (about 12 1/4 pint jars, or 6 1/2 pints), put on lids and process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes.

        Pectin is a necessary ingredient in many jam and jelly recipes - it helps them set. You should be able to find it in any grocery store (usually with the canning supplies). It comes in two forms - liquid or powdered. Sure-Jell is a popular brand here in the Pacific Northwest.

      Re: Do I really need parchment paper?

      I like to use parchment paper for all my baking. It's not a necessity, but it helps keep the baking sheets newer and keep from getting oil build up.
