When Life Gives You Apples...

You make jelly, of course!
My mom came bouncing in the door with 2 buckets of apples she picked from her trees. It seems this year she beat the deer to them and thought I would like to have them. I loved having them. I haven't had apple jelly in a very long time and it is definitely my favorite by far. Being that these were a la natural and had never seen any spray they needed a good scrubbing to get a dark film off of them. I am not sure what it is but it does come off. Once that was done, I cut off any bad spots, chunked them up, seeds and all,added some water and cooked them. I then strained off the juice and made the jelly. It is yummy!!
