At what point do you add the cornflour - I assume its with the syrup as you say cook until thickened. I'm very interested to know - all the recipes I have for bottling use a product that isn't sold here and say that cornflour is not recommended. Has anyone tried this recipe yet please and if so, how did they get on? I have lots of local apple trees where I can get free fruit and would like to make use of them. - 19 Aug 2013
