Crabapple Jelly

About six 250 ml (1 cup) 



  1. In a large saucepan, bring the crabapples, water, and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 30 minutes, uncovered.
  2. Line a colander with several layers of cheesecloth and place it over a large bowl.
  3. Pour the crabapples in the colander and let drain for about 2 hours without crushing or squeezing the fruit. You should get about 2 quarts (8 cups) of juice. If the amount of juice obtained is different, count about 180 ml (3/4 cup) of sugar for each 250 ml (1 cup) of juice.
  4. In the same clean saucepan, bring the crabapple juice and sugar to a boil. Attach a candy thermometer in the centre of the saucepan. Simmer until the thermometer reads 104 °C (219 °F). Skim carefully while cooking.
  5. Pour into sterilized jars.


  1. Excellent recipe, a little bit sweet.

  2. Do you need to seal the jars with melted wax?
