    Makes: 3 jars

    • 2 kg apples, peeled, cored and diced
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 400g white sugar
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) water

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:1hour30min  ›  Extra time:10min preserving  ›  Ready in:2hours 

    1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Simmer gently 1 - 1 1/2 hours, stirring often, until cooked into a sauce-like consistency.
    2. Meanwhile, sterilise jars and lids in boiling water at least 10 minutes. Transfer jars from boiling water to a tea towel covered work surface.
    3. Ladle the hot sauce into the hot jars, leaving 5mm headspace at the top. Remove lids from boiling water and seal each jar.
    4. Place a folded tea towel in the bottom of a stockpot or large saucepan. Add the hot jars, lids up, and pour in hot water from the kettle to 3/4 of the way up the jars. Cover and boil 10 minutes. Remove jars and let cool.
    5. Store jars in a dark, dry place. Once opened, keep in the fridge and consume within a week.

    Delicious and easy! I just made one batch, with apples and pears, cinnamon sticks and lemon peels and loved it Edit: also cut a bit on the sugar (about 55g) because the fruits are sweet, but don't cut it too much so the preserving won't be compromised.  -  07 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
