BEWARE: I made the recipe 10-16-13; It made four jelly jars full; (It took three quarts of crab apples to make TWO quarts to process.) I had a some jelly left after filling the jars and had it on toast. It was delicious, BUT soon after my lips went numb and I had chest and intestinal pains during the night. I've read where the seeds can produce cyanide. The recipe calls for cutting the crab apples in quarters before boiling/simmering, which I did but of course this cut many of the seeds in half, exposing the parts that can produce the cyanide poisoning. I read where you would have to eat a cup of seeds to be poisoned, but thought maybe cooking all the shredded seeds might have been the problem. It might be that I'm allergic to something in the recipe, but thought I should mention the possible hazard. Bill, McComb, Ohio
