Hang muslin bag up (or use a proper stand if you have one) and let juice drain from apples.  This will take a while.  You can squeeze bag a bit but this will make jelly cloudy (I don't mind)

When you've drain the apples measure the amount of juice you have.  For every pint you'll need a pound of sugar (I use jam sugar because it dissolves easily, but caster sugar will do)
