Making pectin from apples and such?
Hey anyone make pectin from apples? I want to make some jam but the recipe calls for liquid pectin and the local store is sold out.
Cutting up my apples right now. No problem if I screw it up as I have a tree or two full of sour apples. I found a recipe online to make the pectin but was wondering if there is a word of experience out there? Basically it says to boil some washed and cut up apples then simmer the liquid for awhile.
Ideas to use up a tree full of apples would be cool... probably make some wine. They are totally natural and organic.. I didn't even plant the trees they just grew and have apples. Taste like a granny smith or ida red... firm and tart with a just a bit of sweetness.
