Description

A great way to can apples to have on hand for apple pie or apple crisp.

Ingredients

  • 8 jars Quart-Size Canning Jars With Lids And Rings
  • 5 pounds Apples
  • 2-¼ cups Granulated Sugar, Divided
  • 5 cups Water, Divided
  • ½ cups Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Cloves

Preparation

Place jars in the dishwasher to heat them up. They need to be hot when you put the filling inside.

Slice, peel and core apples. Set aside.

Combine 1 3/4 cups sugar and 4 1/2 cups of water together in a large pot; bring to a boil and make sure sugar is dissolved.

While it’s heating, combine 1/2 cup cornstarch, remaining 1/2 cup water and remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Stir in a bowl until no longer lumpy.

After sugar and water are boiling, whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Keep whisking to make sure lumps don’t form. Add in remaining ingredients (except apples) and bring to a boil to thicken.

Pack hot jars with apples. Ladle liquid into jars, leaving a 1/4 inch headspace. Remove bubbles and adjust 2-piece caps. Process in a water bath for 20 minutes (additional time may be needed according to your altitude—use standard canning practices). This is where a large pot is filled with water to completely cover the jars. This is done so that all the bacteria is killed and the jars are sealed and can sit on a shelf instead of in the freezer.

Makes 7-8 quarts (each one is enough for 1 pie).

Delicious! Not overly sweet and just the right amount of spice.
