I am still canning all those apples we bought back a few months ago. Who knew life would be so crazy the last few months? I’ve hardly had more than one day a week (if that, some weeks) to work on the canning. Thankfully I only have about 5 bushels of apples and 7 pumpkins left that need preserving.
So, since we have enough applesauce and apple butter to last us a few years, this original recipe is what I came up with.
Mix all ingredients together in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil, simmer for 1 1/2 – 2 hours or until thickened. It smells wonderful!
Fill sterilized pint jars with the hot BBQ sauce, leaving 1/2-inch head space. Process 20 minutes in a hot water bath. Be sure to add 5 minutes for each 1,000 feet elevation. I have to process mine for 25 minutes because we live at about 1,600 feet.
Yields 6-7 pints.
Note: I prepare my own applesauce by simmering quartered apples until tender and putting them through an old-fashioned food sieve. If you have tomatoes to put up as well, you could make your own tomato sauce.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
