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 sugar than for a normal jelly recipe.

Step by step recipe

1 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #1Collect up all your fallen apples. It doesn't matter if they are still green, bruised or have been attacked by little creatures - rescue whatever you can! 5 min.
2 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #2Rinse them briefly. 2 min.
3 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #3Cut 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.
5 min.
4 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #4Put 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.
15 min.
5 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #5Discard 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. 2 min.
6 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #6Mix 100 mls granulated sugar and 50 mls jam gelling agent in a bowl, using a whisk. 2 min.
7 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #7Sieve 500 mls granulated sugar into another bowl. 2 min.
8 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #8Bring the apple juice to the boil. 5 min.
9 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #9Tip in the sugar+setting agent mixture in one go. 1 min.
10 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #10Bring back to the boil, whisking gently. 3 min.
11 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #11Add 500 mls granulated sugar all at once. 1 min.
12 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #12Bring back to the boil, whisking gently, then leave to boil for 2 minutes. 7 min.
13 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #13Pour the jelly into jars (still liquid at this stage). 2 min.
14 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #14Screw on the lids. 2 min.
15 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #15Turn the jars upside down so that the trapped air passes through the scalding hot jelly, which will sterilize it the simplest way. 2 min.
16 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #16Stand the jars right way up and leave to cool. 2 min.
17 Windfall apple jelly : Photo of step #17You 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 600 g sugar and 50 g setting agent.

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