Making freezer jelly
It's that time of year to make my crab apple jelly. I picked my crabapples 2 weeks ago and finally had time for the jelly. But it did not turn out thick enough.
Now I have to Re-do.
I'm not sure what to add more of to get it to thicken.
This is what I started with : 5 lb. apples whole
6 c. water
I boiled apples for 1 1/2 hrs. I got 54 oz. of juice.
Added about 3-4 c. sugar. and 1 pouch Sure-Jell Certo (blue box). Boiled it 1 1/2 min. Looks great, but not thick enough. More sugar?, more pectin? more boiling? HELP!
Looking forward to suggestions. Thanks.
