Caramel Spice Apple Butter




9-10 Rome apples

9-10 Granny Smith Apples

1 cup water

4 cups sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon ginger

2 tablespoons lemon juice



Prepare home canning jars and lids according to manufactures instructions.

Press through a food mill.

Measure 12 cups apple pulp and return to saucepan

Heat 2 cups sugar in a 3 quart saucepan.

Process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath canner

Boiling Water Bath



A boiling water bath canner may be purchased and is frequently sold under the name of cold pack canner

It can be made at home using any large kettle or pail that is deep enough to permit water to cover jars at least one inch over the top, with extra space for boiling

The canner must have a rack to hold the jars at least one half inch above the bottom of the canner

The rack may be made of wooden strips, wire or other perforated material, but must be put together in a manner that will allow water to circulate.

The canner should have a cover to keep the water at a good rolling boil all during processing.
