Windfall apple jelly


Windfall apple jelly
This jelly is an excellent way to make use of all those unripe apples that have dropped off the tree.

They (or rather, their juice) makes a delicious jelly with a very delicate flavour.

As these apples are green and generally tart, we need to use a little more gelling agent than for a normal jelly recipe.

Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #1

Rinse them briefly.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

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.

Stage 4 - 15 min.
Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #4
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.

Note: if you do not get the 900 gr of apple juice, you will have to adapt your sugar and gelling weight, you can do it automatically with this little calculator:
Apple juice : grams

Stage 5 - 2 min.

Discard the top deposit and pour the juice into a large saucepan, stopping before you get to the deposit at the bottom. Discard this as well.

Stage 6 - 2 min.

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

Stage 16 - 2 min.

You can now enjoy your delicious apple jelly.

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 900g sugar and 50g gelling agent.

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