Canned Apple Pickles

Introduction: Canned Apple Pickles

This is a great way to make use of small fruit or pieces leftover from other projects.

Step 1: Sterilizing

Start by sterilizing your jars, lids, rings, and tools by submerging them in boiling water for several minutes.

Step 2: Making a Syrup

Add to a large pan one and a half cups water and two cups apple cider vinegar. Then add six cinnamon sticks and a teaspoon of cloves. Add five cups sugar. Mix all together and bring to a boil. Let simmer at least ten minutes.

Step 3: Mint an Optional Step

I like the taste of the pickles with mint, but my wife doesn't like the mint ones on hamburgers. So depending on your preferences, you decide.

Step 4: Peel and Core Your Apples

You'll need to peel, core, and slice your apples. Try to get your slices about as thick as a hamburger chip pickle would be. This is a great way to get rid of small apples.

Step 5: Combining the Ingredients

Fish one of the cinnamon sticks out of the syrup. Place it in the jar with the apple slices. Ladle the syrup over, leaving about a third of an inch head space. A few of the cloves in the jar won't hurt, but a lot can get too strong.

Step 6: Canning

Put a lid on the clean rim of your jar. Snug down a ring. Then submerge in the hot water bath.

Step 7: Boil for Thirty Minutes

After the water has resumed a rolling boil, process for thirty minutes. Then remove the jars.
