This past weekend I was puttering around the house and had some apples to use up. I decided to do a small batch of my Apple & Rosemary jelly, something I have made several times int he past. This is one of my favorites and after the Kickstarter funds, it will almost assuredly be one of the ones I make in the first rounds.
Like a regular apple jelly i add some cinnamon to give it a touch of an apple pie flavor, but rather than adding vanilla to it, I add loads of fresh rosemary and a splash of bourbon. The result is a very bright and herbally verison of apple jelly. In addition, it comes out this amazing red color if you are using red apples (i cook peels and all for the extra pectin).
All in all I used about 8-10 apples, lots of rosemary ( i want to say about 8 big sprigs), two lemons worth of juice (and the yellow part of the peel and the seeds - again, free pectin) and wound up with 12 half pints of jelly. I put a little video together as well talking a little about the process - hope you enjoy!
