3 lg Granny Smith apples
3 c Fresh blueberries; rinsed and picked over
3 c Sugar
4 c Crystallized ginger; optional
1/4 c Golden raisins
1/4 c Apple schnapps or juice
3 (3") strips lemon zest, slivered
1/4 c Lemon juice
6 tb Creme de cassis
3/4 c Chopped pecans
Peel, core and chop the apples. You should have about 3 cups.
Bring apples, blueberries, sugar, candied ginger,raisins, apple schnapps or juice, zest and lemon juice to a boil over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Cook 15 minutes, skimming the surface and stirring often to prevent sticking. Stir in creme de cassis; lower heat and continue boiling and stirring until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes more.
Remove from heat, stir in chopped nuts. Immediately pour into 4 hot sterilized half pint jars. Tightly close caps and store in the refrigerator when cooled.
