Well, you say, why would I want to make apple pectin? If you use apples a lot or have an apple tree or two, it’s full utilization of the fruit. Besides, apple pectin helps prevent constipation, is a moist fiber, and even helps to eliminate heavy metal.
Apple pectin is made from the cores and peels of apples, any kind. If you don’t want to process a lot of apples at one time, keep a container in your freezer and every time you use an apple, drop the peelings and core in the freezer container. When you have about 2 cups, put in a saucepan with 4 cups water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer about 40 minutes. Let stand until cool then strain into a bottle. Drink ½ to 1 cup pectin juice daily.
