    TigBear's Note:

    Found this on a hand written card in Mom's collection. I remember her making these. She loved them but only made them a couple of times because she could never find the right apples. A good sound CRAB apple is what is needed for this It makes an interesting addition to a relish tray. The smell of this on the stove is a reminder of "home" for me. Yes, time consuming but worth it.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Make a spiced syrup by heating together the vinegar, water, sugar and the spices loosely tied in a bag. This should be enough syrup for about 5 pints.
    2. 2
      Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    3. 3
      When cool, add apples and heat slowly, being careful NOT to burst the fruit. (If I remember right bring to just a good "steam").
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and allow to stand overnight.
    5. 5
      Next morning, remove the spice bag and pack apples without reheating, into clean jars and fill to within 1/2 inch of the top of jar with syrup.
    6. 6
      Put on cap, screwing the band tight.
    7. 7
      Process in water bath at simmering temperature (180 degrees F) for 20 minutes.

      Good recipe, did not add the mace. You can keep apples from bursting, run a sterilized needle or skewer thru the apple at the stem. I also pack the apples and then heat the syrup to boil again and then pour over.
