Dutch oven or large pot
5-6 ApplesMedium, peeled and chopped
2cupsWateror apple juice
First core and peel the fresh apples. Then cut into slices.
Toss the sliced apples with the lemon juice in a large bowl (this will keep them from browning) Set aside.
In a large pot, whisk together cornstarch and water briskly, avoiding lumps.
Add the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt, mix well and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Bring to a hard boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Add the apple slices and bring back to a boil then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 2 minutes.
Place in sterilized jar immediately and seal.
Simmer the jars fully submerged in a hot water bath for 20-25 minutes to ensure food safety .
Remove with jar tongs and allow to cool. The cap should be indented to show airtight seal has been made.
*jars may be pre-sterilized in hot water bath, oven or even dishwasher. We just don't want to introduce germs inside the jars. The hot water bath will further sterilize and ensure a safe result.*or 2 teaspoons of apple pie spice
