This recipe is from allrecipes.com
4 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp salt
10 cups water
2 drops yellow food coloring (I skipped this)
3 tbs lemon juice
6 lbs apple
In a large pan combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add salt and water and mix,
Bring to a boil and cook until thick and bubbly
Remove from heat, add lemon juice and food coloring.
Prepare canning jars, lids and bands.
Peel, core and slice apples, Pack the sliced apples into hot jars leaving a 1/2" headspace.
|This thing makes peeling apples a breeze!|
|I soaked them for a bit in a diluted lemon juice.|
Fill jars with hot syrup, and remove air bubbles with a knife (I recommend a plastic knife).
This should be good in pie, over ice cream, hmm how else can I enjoy this?
Until next time, Eat Well & Keep Digging
