When making jams and jellies, the result is only as good as whatever goes into the jar. This is why homemade pectin is a great alternative to commercial pectins - because you know exactly what's going into your final product. And it's easy, enjoy!
While you are busy making the season's apple pies, butters and desserts, don’t throw out the apple peels and cores. Make apple pectin stock instead and next summer you’ll be able to make local jam with your homemade pectin. Sweet.
