Canning Apples
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
10 quarts sliced peeled cored cooking apples
7 cups granulated sugar
1/4 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 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.
