Spiced Apple Jelly
Equipment (Important: get all this lined up before you begin)
Put everything into the jelly pan and bring to the boil, stirring frequently. When the apples begin to soften, mash them.
Boil gently until the bubbling makes a sticky sound, then ladle the mixture into the seive held over the medium saucepan, When the seive is half full, encourage the mixture to go through with the wooden spoon. Put the remaining pulp into the small saucepan.
Continue until all the mixture has been seived, keeping the medium saucepan just below boiling. Then return the pulp to the jelly pan, add another 500 ml water, boil and mix and repeat the seiving into the medium saucepan. Discard the pulp. Stir the seived liquid and ladle it through the jam funnel into the sterilised jars. Put the lids on tightly while the jelly is still hot. Allow several hours to cool, then enjoy on bread, toast or ice cream!
