Here you will find a photo of Rosemary Jelly Prep, today the first day after softening of the Apples. The Pulp flavoured with Rosemary & Vinegar will continue in the Jelly Bay until the drips stop. Then comes the Jelly Making Process.
You never hurry the process by Squeezing the bag else you will have a cloudy Jelly not a clear one.
I have put a Recipe for the Rosemary Jelly in the Recipe Section some years back.

Yes he has become handy over the years he even built the downstairs area of our home.

Sorry can't get you a Graham as he does not have access to Roll Bars anymore or a High Speed Welder.

A suggestion for you is to go to a Secondhand Shop or Dump Store and you might be able to get hold of an old Wooden Bar or Kitchen Stool and turn it upside down like Christa's relatives once did.

How to I get myself one of these Grahams?  He sounds quite useful.

This is what you have to do to get the best jelly,  This is what our grandmothers did when they turned an old wooden kitchen chair upside down and hung a muslin bag from the four legs of the chair to drip beautiful clear jelly from their harvests into an old bowl underneath.  Often used for guava jelly, rosella jelly and apple jelly and much more.  It is done in a factory now but with additives to make them set fast.  I have tasted your rosemary flavoured jelly in the past, Dianne and can highly recommend it.  Well done.

Graham made the stand for me about 40 years ago, I also use it for making some of my cheeses with when I need to drain the whey away through a bag. With regards to Jelly making, the higher the bag can drip from the clearer the Jelly.
