Rosehip*and Apple ** Jelly recipe


•    2 lb/900g rosehips
•    4 lb/1800g of apples. I like to use windfalls as they are usually free (good if you have  or know someone with an apple tree).  However, whatever apples you have is okay

•    Juice of half a lemon which is approximately  one tablespoon of juice if you don’t have a fresh lemon to hand (again optional)
•    Sugar –  for very pint (600ml ) of strained juice you need to use 1lb(454g) of white granulated sugar 1:1 ration

About Keeper of the Keys

I'm a 50 plus [ how time flies] multifaceted, oxymoron, who can never really make her mind up. A Witch, a Follow of the Goddess, a Medium, ( I'll talk to anyone dead or alive), a 'wanna be' Writer, a disorganised Blogger, Cake Baker, Jam Maker, Trainee Patchwork-er and Keeper of the Keys for The Under Gardener's Lodge. Mother Grandmother and Wife. I'm fascinated and excited by many things, and therefore could be called eclectic or even eccentric, though some have not been that polite. I live in this Beautiful Magical Lodge with my husband Lou, our rather large dog, Shea and a few other previous residents, who come and go. And like many women of a certain age - I like purple [ and some how pink!] rather a lot!
