    Rinse them briefly.

    Cut into quarters and discard any bad parts.

    You may well have plenty to reject and the apples will turn brown rapidly. This is quite normal.

    Put all the apple pieces through a centrifugal juicer. You will need 900g of juice to make 1.5 kg (just over 3 and a quarter pounds) of jelly, to which you will add the juice of 1 lemon.

    Skim off all the froth carefully, then leave the juice in the fridge for about 30 minutes to settle. You will see that a deposit has formed at top and another at the bottom.

    Turn the jars upside down so that the trapped air passes through the scalding hot jelly, which will sterilize it the simplest way.

Remarks:

For this recipe, it is very important to respect the proportions of apples : sugar : setting agent, so it is worth noting that you should use 900g juice to 600 g sugar and 50 g setting agent.

You can mix different varieties of apples; this will give your jelly a more pronounced flavour.
