My mother in law has been canning since her college days, and knows her way around the kitchen! She was sweet enough to take a weekend and show me a couple of her tips and tricks.
Below I have some sweet pics and our list of the top 5 tips for canning apples, according to my mother in law 😉
Top 5 tips for canning apples
- Try cinnamon before sugar
- Don’t use too much water- it will be runny(about 2 inches)
- Use a peeler
- Use a good Apple! Granny Smith can be too tart, honey crisp is great!
- Keep an eye on them and don’t let them burn!
And there you have it! I hope this post was of some inspiration to you. Let me know in the comments of your favorite fall memories /traditions. I’d also love any canning tips you might have!
P.s Here is a link to a really great simple recipe with instructions for canning applesauce!
