We're going to try making our own pectin this year from sour apples. We have 
enough volunteer apples scattered around the ravines on our farm to make a go 
of it this year. Has anyone an idea what apple might be best suited for 
pectin production ? 

I would guess that crabapples would be a good candidate. We have one volunteer 
tree that looks like a large Whitney crab that I would try first.
