I've had quite a few windfall apples this summer sadly they're only the size of a golf ball but still I am determined that they wont be wasted. So after gathering this week's winfalls together the process of creating Apple & Ginger Jam began .
First the apples were quartered and put in a pan and covered in water . The pan was then brought to the boil and simmered for twenty minutes whilst the apples turned to mash .
|The mash was then left to drain through a jelly bag overnight . No squeezing of the bag is allowed if you want to end up with a clear jelly jam.|
|The next step was to measure the juice, and then put in a pan with an equal volume of sugar. This was brought to the boil and then boiled rapidly until setting point (105 degrees C ) is reached.|
|This is what you should end up with.|
|An excellent alternative to marmalade.|
