Apple Thyme Jelly
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups apple cider
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
3 ounces liquid fruit pectin

Combine the cider, sugar and thyme in a 4-quart microwave-safe bowl, and
stir well.

Cook, uncovered, at full power (650 to 700 watts) for 10 minutes. Stir,
return to the microwave, and cook until the sugar has dissolved and the
mixture has reached a full rolling boil, about 5 more minutes.

Stir the pectin into the mixture, return it to the microwave, and cook for
1 1/2 minutes.

Skim any foam off the surface, and pack the jelly into sterilized jars
according to the manufacturer's directions.

This recipe yields 4 half-pints.

Comments: A delicate flavor -- just perfect for glazing a simple lamb or
pork roast.
