James Wong's Homegrown Revolution
The rich blackcurrant grape flavour of these powder-blue berries makes for a grown-up twist on an old-school kid’s favourite.

  • Step 1

    Roughly chop the whole apple – core, skin and all – into small cubes. Don’t worry, these fibrous bits will be sieved out later and the large amounts of pectin they contain will actually help create a smooth set to the finished jelly.

  • Step 2

    Tip the apple into a medium saucepan with the Oregon grapes,
    sugar, lime zest and juice. Gently simmer on a low heat for 30
    minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    While still steaming hot, press the mixture through a metal sieve
    using the back of a spoon and pour the strained liquid into sterilised
    jars.

  • Step 4

    Serve by spreading generous helpings of the jelly in a peanut butter
    sandwich for a classic all-American favourite, made even more
    ‘American’ by frying in butter on both sides until crisp, golden and
    oozing.
