Serves:

10 Half pints

Method:

Canning/Preserving

Ingredients

10 large
(about 5 pounds) tart apples
2 c
apple cider
3-5 c
sugar ( i use at least 1 cup brown to every 2 cups white)
3 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp
ground allspice
1/2 tsp
ground nutmeg

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash, core, and quarter the apples. No need to peel them.
2
Cook the apples slowly in the cider until tender. Blend in food processor until smooth. You should have 12-14 cups of pulp.
3
Add 3 cups of sugar, then more sugar, if needed, to attain the desired sweetness. Add the spices and mix thoroughly.
4
Place in slow cooker or 350 degree oven for 6-8 hours, stirring often. Test for desired thickness by spooning a small amount onto a cold plate. If no liquid oozes around the edges, then its thick enough.
5
Ladle into sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
6
Process in a boiling water-bath canner for 10 minutes, or 15 minutes for pints. Can also be frozen.
