I’ve grown about 4 chillis and they’re green - can I use them? @sieveheadsarah - the tree is still covered in crabapples 🤦🏻‍♀️

I don't see why not Sharon, here's the recipe I used http://www.cottagesmallholder.com/hot-crab-apple-and-chilli-jelly-recipe-2-470/ I doubled it and instead of using 35/70g of chilli as it says, I used 1 red fresh chilli and 4 whole dried chillies, taste your chillies to see how hot they are though and when your simmering them up with the apples and water taste as you go so you can add more if you want it hotter, one other thing I did was add some dried chilli flakes before pouring into jars,

that way it looks a bit more interesting than just a red jelly. Hope that link works for you 👍🏼

Thanks that’s great Sarah @sieveheadsarah it’s got too dry and hardly any liquid strained out overnight- so I’ve added more water ... we’ll see ... chilli flakes sounds good 👌🏻 😌
