This is a tasty way to use up fresh apples. I call it 'buzzed' apples because they're not completely 'drunken' apples. (there is only 1 c of alcohol in the whole thing) Using butter and some brown sugar (with the white sugar) makes a beautiful caramel color for your pie filling. You can water bath seal it and keep it on your shelf for 2 years...if it will last that long in your house! You can serve it on icecream, cheesecake, or use it for apple crisp, cobbler, or pie. It's delicious. Enjoy!
