Here we go ladies, have fun |
Chilli Jelly recipe:
. 2kg green apples
. 300ml cider vinegar
. cold water to cover
. approximately 1.5kg sugar
. 2 lemons
. 6 bullet chillis finely sliced (seeds can be removed to reduce the heat)
1. Roughly cut up the apples then place into a preserving pan, pips, core and all. Cut the lemons into quarters and add to same preserving pan as apples. Add enough cold water to cover. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the fruit is pulpy.
2. Pour the fruit and liquid into a sterlised jelly bag and allow to drain through into a large container until it stops dripping, about 3-4 hours don't squeeze the pulp as you will cloud it
3. Measure the juice and allow 450g preserving sugar for every 500ml of liquid . Place the juice, cider vinegar, sugar and chilli in a clean pan. Bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat and carefully skim off any scum from the surface. Return to the boil and boil vigorously for 15-20 minutes or until setting point is reached, skimming regularly. Using a sugar thermometer, the setting point will be reached at 105C/220F, alternately drip a little onto a chilled saucer leave a minute the push your finger through, if it wrinkles it is ready, if not bring back to boil till ready
4. Remove the pan from the heat and leave to settle for a few minutes. Skim the surface once again. Pour the liquid jelly through a wide mouthed funnel into jars that have been sterilized (put in oven at 90C/200F/Gas¼). Seal each jar with a lid. This jelly will keep for 2 years, unopened.
