Summer Vacation Day 59 – … and we have jelly

I left the pulp from the hedgerow mix to strain overnight and, much to my disappointment, not that much liquid had strained through the pulp – only 2 cups.  So…..I decided to mix the pulp with a little honey for fruit leather and use the two cups of juice, along with a little lemon juice and a pound of sugar to make 4 jars of Hedgerow Jelly.  The jelly didn’t need additional pectin because of the green apples and the haw berries, but a pound of sugar may have been over doing it – it’s very sweet.  Next year I’ll cut back on the sugar.
