    Selecting, Preparing, and Canning: Spiced Apple Rings1

    United States Department Of Agriculture, Extension Service2

    Spiced Apple Rings

    12 lbs firm tart apples (maximum diameter 2-1/2 inches)

    12 cups sugar

    6 cups water

    1-1/4 cups white vinegar (5%)

    3 tbsp whole cloves

    3/4 cup red hot cinnamon candies or 8 cinnamon sticks

    1 tsp red food coloring (optional)

    Yield: About 8 to 9 pints

    Procedure: Wash apples. To prevent discoloration, peel and slice one apple at a time. Immediately cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices, remove core area with a melon baller and immerse in ascorbic acid solution. To make flavored syrup, combine sugar water, vinegar, cloves, cinnamon candies, or cinnamon sticks and food coloring in a 6-qt saucepan. Stir, heat to boil, and simmer 3 minutes. Drain apples, add to hot syrup, and cook 5 minutes. Fill jars (preferably wide-mouth) with apple rings and hot flavored syrup, leaving 1/2-inch head-space. Adjust lids and process according to the recommendations in Table 1.
