Apple season in Georgia

Apple season in Georgia

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Georgia apple season in here!  This means it’s time to make canned apples and make apple jellies and preserves. According to Menia Chester, Director of Fulton County Cooperative Extension, creating a delicious apple dish is a project the entire family will love.

Fruit low in acid or pectin may need additional acid or pectin added to ensure a proper gel formation.

According to Chester, the most common questions regarding how jellies, jams, fruit preserves, and fruit butters made have equally common responses:

Jelly is usually made by cooking fruit juice with sugar.
