Apple-Nutmeg Conserve

Recipe by Iron Bloomers

From BH&G canning. This would be great with a cheese & cracker tray or as a go-along with pork.

I thought this was good. I did reduce the water to either 1/2 or 3/4 depending on the moisture in the apples I was using. I also reduced the sugar to 3 cups. I used golden raisins and that made the whole dish have a great yellow color. Will def make again!
