I washed all the apples and cut off the stalks, and worked out my quantities and the ratios etc. After gentle cooking, it was time to drain off the juices. Normally I drape some muslin over a colander, but this time with about three kilos of fruit, I needed to improvise.
The fruit in the muslin hung from the big preserving spoon resting on rungs of the clothes airer, to give the required height above the bowl. I made up 10x 240g jars of jelly.
