    Making Apple Jelly

    I just got a big bunch of apples so I decided to make apple jelly. I haven't had it in years. I'm just going to use a recipe with apples and sugar and no store bought pectin. I've made apple butter in the past but this time I want jelly!

    I think I'm low on cheese cloth but I think somewhere a long time ago I read that you can also use cotton t-shirts for straining the jelly after cooking up. Do you know if that is true? I have a ton of new cotton t-shirts someone gave me and I had planned on embroidering designs on them to see how they turn out but maybe this is a use for them too.

    If not the cotton t-shirts is there any other go-to thing you use if you don't have cheesecloth around? I'm hoping to make it tomorrow. :-)

    I have used muslin in a pinch. At one time I had an actual jelly bag, fabric weave was a little bit looser than muslin but not much

      I would use a paper coffee filter placed in a kitchen strainer.

        Oh good! I do have both muslin and paper coffee filters around :-)

          Coffee filters, paper towels and linen dishcloths make viable cheesecloth substitutes in a pinch.
