In a large covered kettle, simmer the apples and water until tender. Press through
a sieve or food mill. Measure 2 quarts of pulp; place in a large roaster (discard
the rest or save for another use - such as applesauce.)
Add remaining ingredients;
Bake, uncovered at 300 degrees F for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally,
or until mixture reaches desired consistency.
Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch
headspace. Adjust caps. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath.
Yield: 10 half-pints
