Crabapple tree

Another sign that Summer is fading into Autumn.

hmmm.... I'm thinking Crabapple jelly???? There's bound to be a recipe somewhere on the internet.

Could you believe this?!?! I never tried crabtree apple before. As a kid, I have seen them growing wild and always assumed them to be inedible. Otherwise, the kids would have picked them clean already.

NB: The photo of the crabapple tree is amazing.

You brought back fond memories. My parents had a small CrabApple tree that bore so much fruit. Mom made the best jelly from it. Unfortunately I was never interested in making jelly and now they are gone and so are the old recipes.

I used to make crab apple jelly. It's rosily pretty in the jar, as well as lovely on your toast. No doubt there's a recipe in a box of surejel...well, yes I always cheated and used it although apples have lots of pectin. I do hope you try making some!

Awesome photo! They are such a cool color, I had no idea or had forgotten since I haven't eaten a crabapple since I was a child. But I'm totally a proponent for the jam!! :)

What a beautiful photograph. I found a recipe for crab apple jelly in a book of preserves...if you would like the recipe, please let me know.

I see that you recently visited St Lawrence Market. Sorry that I missed you, but I was taking a break last week. If you visit again, do drop by and say hello.

Crabapple jelly is delicious. We never had a tree when I was a kid during the war, but neighbors left us gather some or enough to make several jars of jelly. I can still remember the taste. Here where I live now, the neighbors have crabapple trees and those just drop to the ground. But some quantity stays on the trees and are freeze dried over winter. In the spring, an American robin will stake out the tree as its own and defend it against all other birds and squirrels. By then the fleshy part is all gone and only the seed is left hanging on the tree. Just large enough or small enough for the bird to swallow.

Amazing fruit. Nice photo. Interesting post. Thanks for your visits to my blog.
