  • 1 kilo of apples cored
  • 450 g sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 1 tsp nutmeg ground
  • A pinch of clove ground


  • Chop up the apples and cook them on a low heat until soft. Process the apples in a blender or Vitamix. I then added the sugar and the spices and returned the apple pulp to the pan. Cook on low, stirring frequently until the mixture is thick.
  • Wash the jelly moulds in very hot water and pour in the spicy apple pulp. Cover with cheesecloth and leave to cool.
  • Leave to dry out for a month at least. Then you can unmould them and keep wrapped in cheesecloth. They will last for years.
