    Pink Apple Jelly Recipe

    Pink Apple Jelly Recipe

    I currently have two apple trees in my front yard. The Jonathan apple tree produced approximately 1000 apples this year. I have thus been busy making and canning applesauce. My husband bought me a peeler and corer, which made the task so much quicker and so much easier. I can make my own chunky applesauce that has the same texture as store-bought. Not wanting to waste any part of the apple if possible, I also decided to make some pink apply jelly this year. I was able to use the peels and cores of my apples to make some pretty pink jelly that will pair perfectly with my thumbprint cookies at Christmastime.

    Ingredients

    • 2 dozen apple peels and cores
    • 12 cups of water
    • 1.75 ounces of pectin
    • 7 cups of sugar

    Directions

    1. Cover the apple peels and cores with the water.
    2. Boil the apples for 30 minutes.
    3. Strain the water from the cooked apples
    4. Discard the cooked apples.
    5. Transfer 7 cups of the apple water to a large pot.
    6. Whisk in the pectin.
    7. Heat the apple water to a rolling boil.
    8. Whisk in the sugar.
    9. Boil for 5 minutes or until jelly begins to set.
    10. Transfer the apple jelly to prepared pint jars, leaving, 1/4-inch headspace.
    11. Boil the jars in a water-bath for 5 minutes.
