The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
I realised recently that I haven’t shared my crab apple and chilli experience.
And the crazy thing is that I made a film of it.
How daft is that?
We scrumped the apples from the tree of a neighbour and a tree I posted about recently.
Lets see the video please and thank you for sharing Liz

I love Crabapple jelly – it’s one of my favorites. What kind of Chille did you use? I’m very curious.
Dried chillies that we’d grown I think.
Ah, I see. I had it in my head that it might be like Red or Green Jalapeno pepper jelly. I make it now and then, although it’s been years. I don’t know if it is very well known.
That sound good too. Thanks for the tip.
Sorry folks. They changed the app recently and the way of inserting video isn’t what it was.
So I’ve now put the embed code back in now.
Scrumped…. Another new word….I liked the video
It seems that it’s a very UK word.
I think the video wasn’t up when I first looked. That’s a great idea to invert the cup in the bowl and rest the colander on it! I used to do a lot more canning and had a little gadget that held a bag, but it’s long since been passed on to my daughter. I like the clothes pin idea, too.
This looks so good, and I can see now it’s not like my sweet hot jelly I make, but must have a lot of the same type of sweet hot flavor – only it must have more dimension from the crab apples! Thanks for posting and I love the video idea. I’ve been thinking of doing some videos, too, at my brother’s urging! We’ll see…
You did a good job. Did you have to rig up special lighting?
Thanks very much. No special lighting. I film and photograph everything with my iPhone. I get lazy about using other gadgets. The important thing is to have the window at my back. I sometimes use a mini tripod and that’s it. Getting in close too.
Thanks! It looks great! I haven’t done videos with my food, but have done several with my dog. I noticed they seem to be dark for the most part. I’m glad you posted and I think I’ll try a couple. Man, I need an I phone!
You might get a kick out of them, here’s one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E–BYQUSMU8
Loved it. I’ll need to work a lot harder on training the chickens! I watched my own film again after I read your comment. Food would be easier because in this film you had the contrast of the living room against the brighter kitchen. If you’re making film. You need all the lights on or better still to be well lit by windows. But ‘dark’ films are made by contrast between light and dark. In this film it actually benefits the action because gibson’s journey to the fridge is very important. As is the light in the fridge. That adds to the story!
The other key is positioning the camera.
He’s a lovely dog. The sock film is lovely.
