Canning Apples!

Apple Season is getting close!!

Did I share this recipe with y'all last Fall?  
I don't remember!

Harvest Apples

Apples, any size or variety
(enough to fill a large turkey roaster when sliced)

5 cups sugar
4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoon Ground clove
1 cup apple cider vinegar
¾ cup lemon juice

Wash and core apples, do not peel.  Slice and cut into chunks.  Combine with sugar and spices, mixing gently until apples are coated, let stand 20 minutes or until juices run.  Stir in raisins, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.  Add water.  Liquid should not quite come to the top of the apples.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.  Pack hot fruit into hot, sterilized jars, leaving ½ inch headspace. Being sure to divide the liquid evenly between the jars.  Remove air bubbles.  Wipe rims of jars clean and adjust two-piece caps.  Process 20 minutes in a boiling–water canner.

These are fabulous alongside pork!
These are fabulous with oatmeal!
Probably even fabulous mixed into rice pudding!
Did I mention they are 'fabulous'?!!!

Thanks C for the recipe!!  One of my faves!
This year I'm gonna put up a lot of applesauce.
Great substitute for oil in baking!
