I like spiced apples that are home canned with vinegar, sugar a half stick on Cinammon and maybe raisins. But the only recipes I can find for spiced apples are for cooking and eating now, without the vinegar.
Does anyone have a recipe for what I am looking for? I have checked 5 cookbooks including the Dave's Garden Cookbook.
I am not sure if this will help you but I found this:
8-10 lbs apples
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup red hots candy
2 sticks cinnamon
2 tsp whole cloves
1 tsp ground ginger
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups vinegar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
2 TBS red food coloring (optional)
Peel and slice apples sprinkle with Fruit Fresh to prevent darkening. Combine remaining ingredients in a large saucepot and bring slowly to boil. Drain apples and add to syrup mixture; simmer 4 minutes. Pack hot apples into hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Ladle hot syrup over apples, remove bubbles, adjust two-piece caps and process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
Yes, this is good. I may not use the red hots but I will probably add raisins. I also have seen pieces of nuts in this mix, like pecans. What I didn't know was the proportions were so you have answered my problem.
I really like the idea of ginger in this. Thanks.
