  • Put the crab-apples in a preserving pan with water and the strips of lemon rind and simmer gently until just tender.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and strain, reserving the liquid. Put the sugar and vinegar in a pan and add the liquid from the fruit.
  • Tie the spices in a piece of muslin and add to the liquid. Heat gently, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil and boil for 1 minute.
  • Add the crab-apples and simmer gently for 30-40 minutes, until the syrup has reduced to a coating consistency. Remove the muslin bag after 30 minutes.
  • Pack the fruit in small jars, pour over the syrup and cover with airtight and vinegar-proof tops.
