  • About


  • 1 qt. sour apples, diced
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cups water
  • 6 pieces ginger root


Wipe, pare, quarter, core and cut the apples into small squares. Grate the rind of the lemon. Boil water, sugar and lemon juice 12 minutes or until clear, add the rest of the ingredients and cook slowly two or more hours until thick and brown.

Will keep for several weeks, or longer if filled while hot in air-tight cans.
