    The fog has lifted and I can see a ways into my future....and I see me making apple jelly some time this weekend . DO you give them a dip in ascorbic acid first to keep the color?

    Put another 6 1/2 apples (Ida Reds) in my dehydrator. Cooked the peels, core, and half an apple, squeezed it out, got a cup and a third of juice. Ended up with a little over a cup of what I hope is jelly (cooling as I type). I like the deep ruby red color from using mostly peels.

    Hate to monopolize this thread (like a kid in a candy store on this site)...I juiced 25 Ida Reds (put away 2 qts juice) with the idea of making more jelly. Well, I don't think that's going to happen. The pulp I got from the juicer was Soooo dry.....I added back a quart of juice and so far a quart and a half of water.....looks more like it all is going through the Foley food mill for applesauce. Then compost what's left....100% use anyway.

    This thread reminds me of how Mama made applesauce. We had an apple tree in the backyard and she'd cook the skins with the apples, taking them out after cooking. It made the prettiest pink applesauce

The skins have enough pectin in them that I didn't need to buy any extra. I ended up with two jars of apple jelly.

    The only thing I hadn't planned on was that oldest dd has been eating the frozen peels as a snack. One of the buckets I took out of the freezer had only cores and a few tiny peels left. Dd had eaten all the rest.
    Your post is awesome and very informative. I like apple pie. It tastes like anything.Thanks for sharing with us.
