DIRECTIONS

  • In an 8-quart pot, combine apples, apple juice, lemon juice, and butter.
  • Over medium heat, bring the apple mixture to a boil; decrease heat and simmer, covered, until the apples are tender, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove the cover; add in sugar, 1 cup at a time, stirring gently between each addition.
  • Heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in all the pectin; return to a full boil, stirring constantly.
  • Boil, stirring constantly, 1minute.
  • Remove pan from heat; skim off any foam.
  • Gently stir in the nutmeg and cinnamon until combined.
  • To prevent floating fruit, allow the preserves to cool 5 minutes before filling the jars.
  • Gently stir the preserves to distribute the fruit.
  • Ladle the preserves into hot sterilized jars, leaving ¼ inch headspace.
  • Wipe the jar rims and threads with a clean, damp cloth.
  • Cover hot lids and apply screw rings.
  • Process half-pint jars in a 200° F water bath for 10 minutes; pint jars for 15 minutes.
