canning apple jelly ~ 2nd batch

canning apples ~ 2nd batch

10 apples went into the Breville this afternoon, juice was cooked with 5 cups of sugar and almost 2 boxes of pectin.  My vote is that 5 cups of sugar has a better taste than the 7 I made earlier in the week, just like I thought ~ intuitive cooking!  This was a really really good batch!  I realized as I stood by the pot stirring that  the pot had a familiar aroma and that it was essentially apple cider made into jelly.  Yum, next on the agenda will be apple cider with mulling spices from Williams-Sonoma.  Hopefully there will be a chill in the air again soon!
