it’s all apples, all the time in the Great Island kitchen right now

We’ve found bags of crisp Macintosh at the supermarket, and all kinds of heirloom varieties at the local pick-your-own orchard. We loved those apple brats and cider doughnuts, of course, but we really came for the apples! Red, yellow, green, we love them all, and we’re preserving them like crazy!

My Mulled Cider Jelly is a beautifully golden spiced apple jelly that’s a fabulous addition to a fall cheese plate, or a simple turkey sandwich. It’s super quick to make, and it can be water bath canned for gift giving.

I made this for neighbor gifts this year and it turned out wonderful!! I had never made jelly before I tried your Hot Pepper Jelly back in the summer. This one was just as easy! Thank you!!
