    I made this following the recipe and it ended up more like sauce than jam. It wouldn't gel, no matter how long I cooked it. That said, even as sauce the flavor is VERY tart. I wonder if adding more honey would do the trick, or if it requires some sugar to tame the tartness of the crabapples.

    While waiting for this to "jell" it never really got there after a LONG time boiling. I decided to jar it and see what happens. It almost seems more like an apple sauce than jelly but I'm waiting 24 hours to see how it all sets up. Has anyone else had trouble getting it to jell in the pot, and is it supposed to have a saucy consistency?

    Do u boil crabapples whole or do u cut them up? Putting them thru sieve, do u strain out the seeds? If boiled whole there will be skin and seeds. Leave in or strain out?

    I made this jam last night and it did not set properly. How long does it usually take for the jam to set using this recipe? Is there a way to fix it without using commercial pectin?
