After Ott, E and I went apple picking I canned my usual apple products: Carmel Apple Jam, Applesauce, and applebutter. But this year I thought I would also try a new recipe. One that I actually found on Mrs. Wages website which was originally from Marisa, the blogger over at Food in Jars.
12 cups chopped apples
1 1/2 cups lemon juice
1 cup honey
5 cups sugar
zest of 2 lemons
Combine the chopped apples and lemon juice in a large pot and cover over med-low heat, stirring frequently, until the apples have broken down. When you've got a nice, chunky applesauce, add the honey and sugar and stir to incorporate.
Hip Girls Guide to Homemaking talking up these food swaps, so when they started one in Indy I thought I would give it a try. I will be there with jars of this delicious jam to swap.
