I've just about finished pickling & canning the garden veggies, will start up on the eggs in a couple days, those pickle quick and easy enough (6 dozen, the ladies have been laying like crazy the last few weeks). We usually pick the apples last. Probably end of this week or weekend at the latest. The apples, we peel/slice then freeze to be used in pies throughout the winter. I make quite a bit of apple sauce and apple butter. I even get enough juice to do up 3 gallons of Hard Cider for the holidays. Here's where I need someone's help if you can.
I had as a child (from grandma's root cellar) that she called spiced apples. Just remove from the jar and eat as is with dinner, etc. Grandma is long gone and her recipes are lost forever (if someone in the family has them, they are not talking). Does anyone have a good recipe for canning spiced apples? I have searched the internet with no luck.
