Title: Lemon jelly
Yield: 2 Pints
4 lg APPLES (tart--Granny Smith)
Water To cover
3 c GRANULATED SUGAR
Slice the lemons, including the rind, seeds and all, thin, and place
into a saucepan.
Core the apples, but do not peel, and chop coarsely. Add the apples
to the pan and pour in enough water to just cover the fruit. Cook

thicknesses of damp cheesecloth and let drip into a bowl for about an

juice, add 3/4 cup of sugar.

mixture reaches the jelly stage, about 220- to 225-degrees F on a
candy thermometer. To be absolutely certain, place a tablespoon of
the hot mixture into a saucer and set it in the freezer for a few
minutes. If it jells, the mixture is ready.
Pour the jelly into HOT, sterilized jars and seal.
