  1. Prepare apples as for pie.
  2. Put a layer of apples and then a layer of sugar, etc.( layer over and over) until done.
  3. Put in cool place (they had root cellars for this) overnight.
  4. Next day place in jars.
  5. Divide juice between jars;(from the sugar and apples comes a simple syrup and they probably filled jars rest of way with water as it has to be completely filled) cold pack 10 minutes; the apples stay in slices, do not mush and are almost like fresh apples for pie, etc.
