How Make Crab Apple Preserves

The easiest way ever to preserve an apple!!


Find a daughter with a crap apple tree...(or someone!)

Pick a few bushels of apples

Pick them with the little stems left on!

Wash apples and cut off blossom end....like this....

Set them aside while you make the light syrup.

Have your sterile mason jars ready to go before you make your syrup.  An simple way to sterile jars to to fill 1/4 full with water and place in oven at 200 degrees for 15 or more minutes.  Leave jars I oven until your ready to use.  Jar must be hot in order to pour in hot boiling syrup...boil cover too.

Syrup is made with a 4 to 1 ratio ....so 1 cup of sugar to 4 cups of water.  Bring to a full boil, and turn off.  Have your canner pot also full of water and keep it at an almost boiling point.

Fill the hot jars with the tiny crab apples
Use a funnel and pour the hot syrup over the apples

Don't they look pretty! 

Have a large pot or canner pot on the stove top boiling with hot watery

Put on the hot covers and tighten finger tight......you will now place the mason jars full of apples and syrup into the canner pot and cover the pot and boil it all for 20 minutes

After your 20 minutes are done, remove from pot and set aside to cool.  As they cool you should hear a popping sound as the lids seal.  Tis sound is the sound of success !!  Then step back and admire the beauty of it all.

THE END.....Special thanks to my daughter Vicky for her apple tree and all her hard work making the apples and being my model.
