2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 Tbsp chopped mint or basil
4 anchovies
2 cloves garlic

3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 egg yolks
1 egg
4 cloves of garlic
1 Tbsp wholegrain mustard
500mls olive oil

Crabapple Jelly

1.5kg Crabapples
5 to 7 cups water

Chop or slice the fruit leaving the cores and skin on as they are pectin rich. Add water to just cover them.  Cook fruit in a covered pan until completely pulped. Strain through a jelly bag or fine cloth. Measure juice and allow 1 cup sugar to 1 cup juice. Heat the juice to boiling point. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar until dissolved. Return to heat and boil briskly until setting point is reached. Skim to remove the scum. This should take about 15 minutes. Pour into sterilised jars at once.
