    Posted in response to a request. I haven't tried this, but love the idea of using that which would normally be tossed to make something delightful. Cook time is approximate and does not include water bath time.

      I add apple juice instead of water. I also strain through a sieve so just the finest amount of pulp gets through. Somehow it just looks more like homemade. :-D If you boil for 2 minutes you will get a firmer jelly. I find the color to be pretty enough with out adding any dye. I agree this is an awesome way to use the cores and peels. I have been making it for a couple of years now. Great christmas presents. ;-)

      If you use a candy thermometer and boil, stirring constantly, until the jelly reaches 220 degrees, you can be certain your jelly will set. Also, you can keep a small saucer in the freezer and pour a teaspoon full of jelly on it to see if it sets up. If you can run your finger through it and leave a clean trail after 30 seconds or so, your jelly will set.

      I made two batches of this. One batch set up pretty well but is still a bit "runny" and the other batch is still liquid. I plan to redo these using the recipe for Liquid Cement because the flavor is wonderful. From the runny batch, I will set a couple of jars back because its great on pancakes. I did add a couple of cinnamon sticks. The house smelled wonderful while I was making this. We are putting up some more applesauce this weekend and I plan on making more. I didn't really measure out the peels and cores I just sorta dumped in the scraps leftover from making applesauce but I had well over 7 cups of "juice" from each batch I did. I'm only giving it 4 stars because it didn't set up as well as jelly should.
