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. :-)
