This is great to make when apples are abundant. Serve as a topping on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. It makes a heavenly yoghurt pot, topped with crunchy muesli. The preserves can also be used to fill puff pastry parcels or a tart.
Having an apple tree in our yard I am always looking for ways to preserve/use the apples up. I made one batch (6 jars) of this recipe in fall of 2000. I wasn't too sure at first because over time the liquid and apples separated but I made apple pies with it and it was just great. Sure cut down the time in making apple pie from scratch and at the same time was far superior to canned apple pie filling. The ony change I will make this year is to change the spices to agree with my personal taste as I found this to be a little lacking in flavour. - 28 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was delighted to find this recipe last Christmas as I give gifts in a jar to people with whom my husband works. This was a variation on the "cookies in a jar" theme. I have used it since as just a side dish, cutting down on the cornstarch. It freezes well and is a wonderful treat. Thank you. - 09 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Awesome !! This is so good. Good over ice cream pancakes waffles or french toast. This is so good to just eat out of the Jar.. Add to your pancake batter very good we eat them out camping .. - 27 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
