Method

  • 01
  • Combine apples, lemon juice and seeds in a large saucepan. Cover with 1 litre water, bring to boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.
  • 02
  • Transfer mixture to a muslin-lined fine sieve and strain into a bowl, discarding pulp. This should yield about 2 cups of liquid.

  • Combine liquid and sugar in a large saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve sugar and cook for 15-20 minutes. Test whether jelly is set. If not, return to heat and test after 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stand for 10 minutes, then skim scum from surface. Add rosemary and ladle into clean, dry jars.
