Servings 7


Step 1

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 3/4 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.

This recipe yields 7 to 8 quarts.
