Recipe and Baking Blog Hop



Welcome!   You should have come from Laurie's Blog, if not you may have missed some great inspiration and will want to start from My Cricut Craft Room so you don't miss any of the awesome recipe projects .


We have a couple of great crab apple tree's in our back yard and this year we decided to pick the apples and make something with them, so I decided to try my hand at jelly making.  


I decided to do a layout showing off my jelly making skills.  :-)  






Crab Apple Jalapeño Jelly

 2 pounds crab apples (1 kg.)
1-1/2 cups water
red wine vinegar
3-3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup sweet green peppers
1/3 cup hot peppers
Crab apple pectin gives a good set to this hot pepper jelly. Mix and match hot peppers for color and degree of heat. 
When chopping hot peppers, wear gloves and don't touch your face or eyes.
In Dutch oven, combine apples with water. Cover and bring slowly to simmer; cook until apples are very soft. Pour into colander lined with square of dampened muslin and placed over deep bowl. Weight down with saucer and heavy can. Let stand until dripping stops. Discard pulp.
Pour collected juice into liquid measure; add enough vinegar to make 3 cups. Combine in saucepan with sugar. Bring to boil, stirring. Add peppers; boil briskly for 8-10 minutes or until set. Stir for 7 minutes to prevent floating peppers.
Pour jelly into hot, sterilized 8-oz sterilized preserving jars. Seal with two-piece canning lids. Let cool and refrigerate. For long-term unrefrigerated storage, process in boiling-water bath for 5 minutes immediately after sealing jars.

This is an awesome recipe.  Give it a try!

  35. I love making jams and jellies to share as Christmas treats, thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe! It is popular in these parts to spoon jalapeno jellies over cream cheese to serve with crackers so I think this one will be a hit. Your layout came out great too! Many Happy Thanksgiving Blessings to you and yours - vfazekas at yahoo.com

  40. I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
    And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
    Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
    attempting to use the slow internet :)

    I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
    of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
    animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

    Love you!
