Original recipe called for 1 cup cranberries to help it gel and for color. I didn't have any. It is a beautiful light pink and gelled well without. I also made fruit leather out of the leftover pulp mixed with one cup of sugar.

How to Make Habanero Apple Jelly

Step-by-Step

  • 1Quarter apples. Don't peel and don't remove core. Add all ingredients except the sugar. Bring to boil and then simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use a potato masher to make the consistency of runny applesauce. Don't worry about the peels.
  • 2Suspend a colander, sieve, or cheesecloth over a large bowl. Spoon in the apple mixture. Let drain overnight. For clear jelly, just let it drain. If you squeeze, it will be cloudy.
  • 3For 4 cups of juice, use 3.5 cups sugar (7/8 cup per cup of juice). Boil juice and sugar to 220 degrees. Ladle into sterilzed jars and seal with your method of choice.
