DIRECTIONS

  • Clean the crabapples. I usually fill the sink with cold water and pour the apples in then give them a good swish.
  • Boil the water.
  • Pour the apples into as many containers you need making sure that each pot/pail is just over half full.
  • Add the creme of tartar to the boiling water and dissolve.
  • Pour the water into each container to fill.
  • Let stand 24 hours.
  • Drain through the jelly bag.
  • Discard apples.
  • I can the juice but it can be stored in the freezer too.
  • To can, sterilize the jars and lids.
  • Boil the juice and fill sterilized jars.
  • Make sure the lids pop as they cool as evidence of a good seal.
