Canning apples

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 quarts Cooking apples; Peeled, cored, sliced
7 cups Granulated sugar
¼ cup Lemon juice (to 1/2 cup)

Place apples in a large crock or bowl; add sugar and lemon juice, stirring gently to blend well. Cover and allow to stand overnight so apples can release their juice. The next day, wash eight quart jars; keep hot until needed. Prepare lids as manufacturer directs.

Using a slotted spoon, lift apple slices from the juice and place them in quart canning jars until jars are ¾ full. Heat the juice to the boiling point and pour over the apples to within 1 inch of the tops of the jars. Release bubbles by slipping a plastic knife between fruit and the side of the jar. Wipe jar rim clean with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel; attach lid following manufacturer's directions.

Repeat with remaining jars. Process in boiling water canner for 20 minutes at sea level.

Makes 7 to 8 quarts
