Apple tree

August 27, 2011 | Family,Food,Iowa

Our apple tree is loaded with apples this year. I’ve got to get into harvest mode soon. I might try making apple jelly this year.

What’s your favorite recipe for apples? Pie? Salad? What’s the craziest apple dish you’ve eaten? Let me know. I love new recipes!

This is one of my new favorites from my aunt. We ate these when we were in Missouri. Yum!

Aunt Carolyn’s Candy Apples
4 apples, peeled and sliced
A little water
Red Hots candy
1/2 cup sugar

Place sliced apples in a skillet with a little water and heat. Cover with Red Hots. Stir only after juice from apples accumulates. Add sugar and cinnamon. Cook until soft.

Food: Apple preserves

October 10, 2010 | Apples,Food

This is for @mommadona.

Prairie Rose Acres Apple Preserves
12 cups apples, peeled, cored & sliced
2 cups water
2 tablespoons lemon juice (we used lime juice because we didn’t have lemon juice in the house)
2 packages powdered pectin
8 cups sugar
4 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Combine apples, water and lemon juice in a large pot. Bring to a boil and simmer up to 30 minutes. Run the apples through the blender and return them to the pot. Stir in pectin and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring often. Add sugar. Return to a full rolling boil, then boil hard for 1 minute, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add nutmeg. Immediately pour hot mixture into sterile jars. Put on lids. Boil in a water canner for 40 minutes. (You can halve this recipe. It’s our version of a couple of recipes, and we doubled the amounts.)
