7 c. prepared crab apple juice
9 c. sugar

Use fully ripe crab apples. Wash and remove stems. Place in 6 or 8 quart boiler; cover with water and boil 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool; to extract juice, place crab apples in dampened jelly bag or several thicknesses of cheesecloth. Let drip; when dripping gently press or squeeze bag. Measure sugar and set aside. Measure juice and Sure Jell.

Bring to a full boil over high heat, stirring constantly. At once stir in sugar and bring to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down; boil hard for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, skim off foam with large metal spoon. Immediately put into hot jars and seal.
