I picked through and pulled out 12 lbs of apples, about 24 of them give or take. You don't have to be on the nose with the poundage.
My sister, (bless her heart, I'm sure she's tired of me asking if she's getting anymore apples) got in more apples for me. This bag is full to bursting!!!
coring and slicing these puppies. Make sure you drop the apple slices into the lemon water as you cut them to prevent browning.
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling bowl, measure out 6 cups of apple slices and add them to the boiling water.
Cook for only 30 seconds!!!!!!!!
Once all of your apple slices have been heated through, add in the following ingredients:
5 1/2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups of ClearJel (NOT cornstarch)
1 TBS ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves.
Now stir in 5 cups of apple juice and 2 1/c cups of cold water. Cook this over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until it starts to thicken and boil. (This picture was taken as I was stirring in the apple juice and water).
