A rich and tasty dish that is easy to cook. Ideal for supper on on a cool Autumn evening, served with a pasta of your choice, and perhaps a dressed green salad
Crab apples are small and sour tasting, but they make fantastic jelly. The fruit are usually small and red, between 1cm-4cm in size with wild crab apples being bigger. I made this jelly from a miniature tree grown in a tub on my patio and the fruit were about 1.5cm. It yielded just over 1kg of fruit, which was more than I expected - this is a young tree so maybe I'll get more next year. The fruit made enough jelly to fill two and a half 1lb/380ml jam jars.
