9 pounds of med. apples (jonathan, McIntosh, golden delicious, or Gravenstein)

1 1/2 Cups of Water

1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar

1 to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Place peeled and sliced apples and water in heavy 8 to 19 qt. pan. Bring to boil over Med. heat. Stirring often. Reduce heat, cover and simmer; until apples are soft. Add sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil(will be chunky can run through food processor if you don't like chunky).

Fill 3 quarts or 3 pints with hot sauce, leaving 1/2" head space. Wipe rims clean and place on lids and bands. Process in boiling water canner for 15 minutes for pints, 20 min. for quarts.

This recipe can be doubled if you like but it can be hard to cook well enough and you'll need to stir contiously to prevent burning. I find it easier to do to pans at once, that way you can have a full canner:-)
