Wordless Wednesday – 29 March 2017

Wordless Wednesday!

Start with crabapples

and end with crabapple (and cinnamon) jelly!

I will admit to cutting up some of these crabapples but not to producing this magnificent coloured jam despite my name on the jar!  That honour goes to my friend Cathy who is a domestic goddess.

Enjoy your Wednesday whatever you have planned!

Debbie 🙂

    What exactly is a crabapple Deb?

      They are a small sour, tart type of apple, usually used by adding sugar and making jam. Good question!

        Thanks Deb! You know I used to read Trixie Belden mystery novels when I was a kid and her mum used to make crabapple jam. We didn’t have google back then but I’m sure dad told me what they were. I didn’t realize we had them in Australia.

          Snap! I loved Trixie Belden books too. I must admit to not knowing crabapples were here either until this cooking exercise 🙂 They’re quite an old fashioned sort of fruit.

    I’ve never tasted crabapple jam. For some reason I was thinking of Anne of Green Gables. Love a good Jam though.

    Crabapple jam, Is it anything like apple butter?

      I don’t think so, but I could be wrong! Not sure what apple butter is to be honest. 🙂

    Love the addition of cinnamon! I make plum jam with cardamon and apricot jam with vanilla bean and they really do make a difference to the taste.
