Apple Pectin
Apple Pectin
Method
  • Rinse the apples in cold water. Remove the stem and seeds. Cut them into 4 equal parts without peeling them.
  • Put them in a pot and fill with enough cold water to cover the apples completely.
  • Bring to a boil and lower the heat and simmer for ½ an hour.
  • Pour the mixture through a strainer. Press gently with the back side of a slotted spoon.
  • Wet a cheesecloth and wring it well. Pour the mixture into the cheesecloth and let it strain through.
  • Transfer the strained juice to a pot. Add the lemon juice and sugar.
  • Bring it to a boil and remove froth every so often.
  • Continue to boil for 5-10 minutes over high heat, removing froth whenever necessary.
  • Transfer to a bowl and let it cool a little.
  • Pour pectin into a jar and seal tightly.
Tip
You can add pectin to any type of fruit preserves, when the fruit you are using don’t have enough “natural pectin” to create the necessary amount of gelling agent needed.
