Homemade apple jelly

May is here and the apple trees start to bloom. And still many crates with countless apples from last years harvest remain in the garage. Even with eating some, making pies and apple sauce there are still enough apples left to make fruity apple jelly. For today‘s recipe I made two kinds: sweet vanilla and a more unusual version with rosemary.

You‘ll need:
A juicer or juice extractor

Apple jelly with cinnamon and vanilla

Apple jelly with cinnamon and vanilla
Lots of apples – or you could just take a liter of apple juice
1 package of jelly sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla stick (also known as vanilla bean or pod)

Wash your apples, cut them in half and put them in the juice extractor pot. Fill the pot with water according to its directions and bring the water to boil. Wait. Draw off a liter of juice into a pot from which you can easily pour. Scrape out the vanilla pulp and break your cinnamon stick in two and cook both with the juice. Following the instructions on the jelly sugar, make jelly. Fill a little jelly in a bowl to test if it sets. Pour your jelly in sterile glass jars with twist off lids. Add the cinnamon stick as decoration and turn the jar and let the jelly cool while upside down. Done!

Follow the directions above. Instead of vanilla and cinnamon put the rosemary twigs into the juice. Later on when bottling your jelly put them as decoration into your jars. Enjoy!
