  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Remove stems and blossom ends from apples. Cut apples into small pieces. (Do not peel or core.) Place in large saucepan. Add water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 min., stirring occasionally. Crush cooked apples; cover and simmer 5 min. Place three layers of damp cheesecloth or a jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared fruit into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure exactly 6 cups prepared juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. (If necessary, add up to 1/2 cup water for exact measure.)
  • Mix 1/4 cup of the sugar (from the measured amount in bowl) and pectin in small bowl. Add to juice in saucepot; mix well. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining 3-3/4 cups sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from incomplete directions I bought a box of "No Sugar/Low Sugar" pectin. Absolutely NOT one recipe inside. Nada. None. So I came to your website. Please show me in the directions for apple jelly where it says to mix pectin with sugar. It is inferred in other directions. I find this to be sloppy directions. I am a very experienced canner. I know a lot about jams, jellies. preserves etc. I dry, can and freeze everything from our home garden plus what I buy in bulk from local growers. I have never bought this type of pectin before so I wanted to be sure to follow directions precisely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from less - no sugar How is this a less or no sugar recipe if you're adding 4 cups of sugar to the juice? I'm looking for a no sugar added recipe using a sweetener with orange juice, (acid). This one isn't it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really liked it, it was just the right amount of sweet. I really liked it, it was just the right amount of sweet. I added cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice to jazz it up a bit.
