this is so good! and i didnt have to stand there and stir it all the time!
13 lbs. apples or so
3 c. sugar(or to taste)
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. cloves
Cut the apples in half. Toss in large stockpot and pour in a bit of water to nearly cover the bottom. Simmer slowly for 1 1/2 hours. Put pulp through a strainer or food mill and pour back into large roasting pan. Add sugar and spices. Put in oven and bake at 300 degrees, stirring sometimes, for several hours. When thick and theres no liquid left when you put a spoonful on a plate , ladle into hot jars, leaving 1/2 in. of head space. Wipe rim of jars clean; place hot, previously-simmered lid on jar, and screw down rings firmly . Process pints or quarts for 10 min. in a boiling water bath canner.
