This is one of my favourite Christmas recipes. It has a light but warming flavour – perfect for the festive season!
To Make Apple, Orange and Cinnamon Jelly
1 kg cooking apples
1kg caster sugar
1 1/2 litres water
4 cinnamon sticks
Chop the fruit roughly without peeling and add the cinnamon sticks and water. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Strain through a muslin bag. Add the sugar to the remaining liquid and take back to the heat. Heat gently until the sugar is melted, stirring all the time. Then bring to the boil and boil rapidly without touching until it reaches setting point. The jelly can be sieved again to remove any scum and poured into sterilised jars. This amount filled 6 small jars.
