Crab Apple Jelly Recipe

AW16 Glost Dress in Crabapple Indigo | Seasalt Cornwall

Wild crab apple trees are a regular feature along Cornwall’s hedgerows. Their pinky-white blossom appears in spring, and by the late summer months the trees are teaming with fruit. A humble and often over-looked fruit, the crab apple is great for cooking with. Sharp and bitter in taste, they don’t make for the best mid-afternoon snack, but they do make incredible preserves. They’re also known for being an excellent source of pectin meaning they’re the perfect fruits for first time jelly-makers.
