Winnipeg has plenty of gorgeous crab apple trees. The problem that many people seem to have is, what can you do with crab apples?
One of our volunteers has kindly shared a favourite recipe for how she uses crab apples. Carrie got the recipe from her friend years ago and although she doesn’t follow any exact rules, it goes a little something like this:
A full stock pot of washed apples (sliced or whole), sprinkle with a tbsp cream of tartar and cover with boiling water. Let sit 24 hrs and strain, boil the juice, sweeten to taste and seal in sterilized jars. I don’t have a real recipe, but found a few after a Google search like this one! Very easy!
Please share your crab apple recipes with us – we’d love to try them out!
