DIRECTIONS

  • Set a large pot of water to boil.
  • Pour 1/2 cup lemon juice into a large bowl.
  • Peel, core, and slice apples – dropping the slices into the bowl of lemon juice to keep them from browning.
  • When done preparing the apples, add the slices to the boiling water and blanch for 1 minute.
  • Turn off the heat, drain the pot, and return the slices to the pot to keep them warm.
  • In a large saucepan, combine sugar, starch, cinnamon, and apple juice.
  • Add 2 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Lower heat and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in the remaining cup of lemon juice and fold in the apple slices. Stir until warm.
  • Ladle the mixture into clean jars leaving 1” headspace.
  • Remove any air bubbles and wipe rims clean.
  • Process the jars in a canning bath for 25 minutes.
