  • 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 apple slices in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Add 1-2 cups of water and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Simmer until tender (5 to 20 minutes, depending on maturity and variety).
  • Press apple slices through a sieve or food mill or skip the pressing step if you prefer chunk-style sauce.
  • Add sugar and cinnamon if desired. Transfer back to the dutch oven and reheat to boiling.
  • Ladle into 1-quart jars leaving ½ inch of headspace.
  • Cap and seal. Place in the pressure cooker with 4 to 5 inches of hot water.
  • Process at HIGH pressure for 10 minutes. Once done, allow pressure to come down naturally before opening the cooker.
