Crabapple jelly.
 
Managed to harvest quite a few decent crabapples from one of our Dolgo
trees in spite of the dismal outlook of a few weeks ago.
Steam juiced a load, along with 10 sprigs of fresh rosemary then made
some of the resulting juice into jelly. Needed more rosemary as the
jelly has just a hint of it and we'd prefer more.

Ooooh. I'll check a Dolgo tree later this morning. Do you leave the
rosemary in the jelly or strain it out?

I put it in the Liisa along with the halved crabapples. We're going to
make another batch and this time put the rosemary right in the juice
pan so it gets a chance to steep longer. That last batch is a little
light on rosemary so I want to increase it somewhat but, don't want it
overpowering either. Also, will try a little sprig in half of the jars
to see what that accomplishes.
Whatever the results, it's always nice to be able to eat the results
of experiments.
