March 5, 2019

 

 This recipe is from Taste of Home Magazine and has our favorite ingredients, Apples and Maple Syrup!

 

Ingredients

  • 12 cups chopped peeled Granny Smith apples (about 6 pounds)

  • 4 cups sugar

  • 2 cups packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 2 cups finely chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

  • In a stockpot, combine apples, sugars, maple syrup, cinnamon and pie spice; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, 20-30 minutes or until apples are tender and mixture is slightly thickened. Stir in walnuts. Return to a boil; cook and stir 5 minutes longer.

  • Carefully ladle hot mixture into 11 hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.

  • Place jars into canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 10 minutes. Remove jars and cool.

Editor's Note

The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.
To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
