Crab Apple & Blackberry Jelly

Worked well last year and I can provide lots more crab apples for anyone who wants them.


  • 4lbs crab apples, just chopped up a bit
  • 3lbs blackberries, a couple of pints of water - stewed together


  1. When cool, pass through muslin suspended on an upside down stool.
  2. Measure the resulting liquid and add less than 1lb sugar for each pint.
  3. Boil as for jam until set and put in clean [scalded] warm jars.


Editors Note: "I made this last week and it is really flavoursome and tangy , great on toast and sets well."
