Green apples are perfect for making apple jelly:


apple jelly plain,

apple jelly with orange,

apple jelly with ginger,

apple jelly with vanilla…

… and coming up at the weekend: apple and blackberry jelly.

Waste not, want not!

  1. I love your blog! I notice you have the “make and bake” cookbook! I’ve been searching for a recipe from this book for years! It was an old favourite. Is there a recipe for chocolate “porcupine” ? I would love a copy of it! Memories!

  2. Hallo Julie, thank you for your kind comments. And yes, I do believe there is a chocolate porcupine recipe in the Make and Bake Cookbook – how funny that you should discover the book here. I will gladly scan you a copy of the recipe – let me have an email address to send it to – or if you prefer I will turn it into a post here on the blog? Best wishes, Katherine
