Canning Spiced Apple Rings

Canned products

William Schafer


Yield: About 8 to 9 pints


  1. Wash apples. To prevent discoloration, peel and slice one apple at a time. Immediately cut crosswise into ½ inch slices, remove core area with a melon baller, and immerse slices in ascorbic acid solution.
  2. To make flavored syrup, combine sugar, water, vinegar, cloves, cinnamon candies, or cinnamon sticks and food coloring in a 6-qt. saucepan.
  3. Stir, heat to boil, and simmer 3 minutes.
  4. Drain apples, add to hot syrup, and cook 5 minutes. Fill jars (preferably wide-mouth) with apple rings and hot flavored syrup, leaving ½ inch headspace.
  5. Adjust lids and process.
