An apple a day....

This is reposted from my Coop blog, I canned these last fall, what a delicious treat this winter it has been. This has also made some yummy apple crisp.

an apple a day...or a quart Canned some pie filling this weekend, fun and easy. If you have a windfall of apples and want to do more than applesauce, try the following recipe. I used a blend of golden delicious and honey crisp apples. Pack your apples tightly and use a chopstick to get rid of airholes. It makes 6-7 quarts.

Blend together-
3 cups sugar
1 cup honey
1 cup cornstarch
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp ground clove
1 tsp. salt

Stir in 9 3/4 cups of water and cook until thick. Add 3 tbsp. of lemon juice. Pack sliced apples into hot jars. Fill with syrup leaving 1/2" head space. Process 20 minutes in water bath canner
