This old dog was about to learn some new tricks.
First we had to clean the debris away.
then into the pot they went
Notice that super cool colander in the background with the wooden thingy (what do you call those?)
In go the apples. (If you don’t understand that back up to yesterday’s post).
You know they are done when you can smoosh the green apples with the back of a fork.
Learning from the master.
OH my gosh. The aroma!!!
Now it’s time to strain the juice in the super cool colander thingy.
He loves my terminology.
This is the patience part of the process. You have to let it simmer slowly so as not to scorch it and this is how you know it’s ready…
when you hold the spoon up three droplets will fall off side by side. When the three start to drop and then join to form one stream falling to the pan, it is ready.
Now WHO figured that out the first time I wanna know????
I had the hot sterilized jars ready to roll.
700 hours later 6 hours later we had this.
Only one thing left to do.
