    • 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.

      I'm always willing to share pics of my babies :newmom: (I have 2 two-legged, and 2 four-legged)! Of course, the word babies is a bit misleading as the human 2 are 24 & 21. LOL!

      Our "new" Pet Bed

      Well, I'm not sure if this counts because it's more repurposing than making something... but what the heck!
