Thursday, October 09, 2014
several people have asked for the recipe I used ..here it is
this is the recipe I use to make my canned apple pies in a jar...it is from the Allrecipe site.... since I just googled it to get the recipe, I think it's okay to post here..
recipe makes 7 quarts
4 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons salt
10 cups water
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 drops yellow food coloring( I don't add the food coloring
6 pounds apples( I used more like 10 pounds of apples)
it's easy and taste yummy...
follow procedures for canning.....place everything except apple in a large pan bring to a boil and stir till it thickens up....have apples peeled and sliced, place in cleaned hot jars then add the thickened syrup, wipe the top, use 2 piece lids....place in water bath canner ...when water comes to boil , simmer for 20 minutes..
go to google and look for apple pie in a jar..they have better instructions then mine.....
