  • 14 pounds apples sweet, tart, combination
  • Ascorbic acid
  • 8 tablespoons sugar or more to taste
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon to taste (optional)


  • Wash, peel, and core apples. Slice into water containing ascorbic acid to prevent browning. Drain.
  • Place drained slices in a large pot. Add 1-2 cups of water. Stirring occasionally to prevent burning, heat quickly until tender (5 to 20 minutes, depending on maturity and variety).
  • Press through a sieve or food mill or skip the pressing step if you prefer chunk-style sauce.
  • Add sugar and cinnamon if desired. Reheat sauce to boiling.
  • Fill jars with hot sauce, leaving ½ inch of headspace.
  • Cap and seal. Place in canner with 2 to 3 inches of hot water.
  • Pressure cook for 10 minutes on High pressure. Once done, allow pressure to come down naturally before opening the cooker.
