SUPER easy Crab Apple Juice

Post by Prairie Waif2 »

My notes:

I've never cut the crab apples in quarters. I've just removed the stems and blossom ends if necessary. Also, you can let it set a bit longer if you'd like. You can make this sugar free and just replace the sugar with Stevia or whatever artificial sweetner you use. I buy the Cream of Tartar in big (like 1 cup) bags at our health food place or bulk food place. I get food safe containers (BIG ONES) at our ice cream store with lids that cost about $2.00/each.

Remove stems and cut crab apples into quarters – do not core or peel them. Bring the water to a boil, then dissolve the cream of tartar in the boiling water. Pour over the crab apple pieces and let sit overnight. In the morning, drain the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth. Add sugar to taste; approx. 2 cups. Juice may either be frozen or processed in sealers in a hot water bath. To do this, bring the juice to a boil and pour into hot sterilized jars, seal and process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Cool upright and store in a dark, cool place.
Hope has a good imagination.
