"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Pick over crabapples and cut in half. Check for worms inside them. Toss any with holes, too. Remove blossom & stem ends. Do not peel or core. Place in large Soup Kettle and cover with water. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until soft, stirring occasionally. To Extract Juice: place prepared fruit in dampened jelly bag or several thicknesses of cheesecloth or in the top section of a large 2 piece steamer pot. Let drip. When dripping has almost stopped (or to speed up extraction) gently press or squeeze bag. Measure amount of juice for one recipe. Pour juice into heavy 6-8 qt. saucepan. Measure sugar & set aside. Do not reduce sugar. Stir pectin into juice. Pot must be no more than 1/3 full to allow for full rolling boil. Bring to full boil, stirring constantly over high heat. At once stir in jello (if using) & sugar . Stir and bring to a full rolling boil ( a boil that cannot be stirred down) and boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Skim off foam with metal spoon. Immediately ladle into hot glasses or jars, leaving 1/2" space at top of glasses; 1/8" space at top of jars. (Will seal with hot lids and bands, no need to process.) To seal with wax: with damp cloth, wipe inner sides of glasses, rims and threads of jars. Quickly seal glasses by spooning 1/8" hot paraffin onto hot jelly surface. Prick bubbles.
