Everything depends on the crabapples you use. Mine are about 1" in diameter. I ran them through an electric juicer, ending up with 10 cups of juice. The juice was cloudy green. after the initial boil, all of the particulate matter causing the green cloudiness "glomped" together and I was able to pour the juice through a fine sieve to remove it. I returned the juice to a boil and had a small amount of foam, which was easily skimmed. I initially added 8 cups of sugar for the 10 cups of juice. This was based on another review stating they used 4 cups of sugar to 5 cups of juice. After tasting, I realized I had some really sour apples..... I added another 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Brought it up to the 220 degrees F recommended in the original recipe, and proceeded from there to pour into the hot sterile jelly jars, and put them through the water bath. Worked well!
