I can relate to that . I am still astonished by the fact that I would run across Ron after all these years ! I just can't believe that I was able to thank him . How likely is to find some one after 15 or so years . I am dumfounded . At that time I started making English Muffins .

It is a very nice community here and I am very happy to read about Floyd doing better.

It has been a very hard year on us. Historically pandemics last roughly two year. Hopefully this one will wind down after this third wave.

Europe in in the second wave. :fl I am hoping it is not as bad as it could be!

A few days ago the wife made some apple crisp to take away with her sister for a stay at their brothers place.
Little did she know when I bought the 10 pounds of Macintosh apples I was going to make apple jelly. As soon as she drove out the driveway I started. I took all her apple peels and cores, cleaned them up. I cut up the remaining pounds of apples and proceeded to boil everything dow. I added 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to the pot.
This being the first time I’ve tried to make apple jelly I knew it would be a bit of a challenge.
I didn’t tell her why I bought 10 pounds of apples but I had a plan and a mission. I had been researching apple jelly recipes for quite some time.
while I was boiling the apples and then draining them through cheese cloth I washed and sterilized my bottles, rims and boiled water for the lids.
After 4 hours I collected 10 cups of beautiful red apple juice. I added 9.5 cups of sugar, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of butter. The butter is supposed to help make less foam when boiling the juice. As every recipe said when not using Commercial pectin just the natural of the apples boil until the mixture reaches 220. I was able to fill 5 pint Masson jars with jelly and put them in the water bath for 10 minute. Sadly 1 bottle broke. I’m not sure whether I had a bad bottle, but I did forget to turn the burner down and let it fully hard boil and the jar may have got a bump during the hard boil.
Thanks so much for the Jelly instructions and mini blog! The videos are wonderful too
