( Lady Apple Preserves)
Makes 1 Quar
Leaving stems intact, pierce the apples
all over with a thin skewer and place in a pot. Cover with boiling
water and put a plate on top to keep the apples submerged. Let stand
for 15 minutes.
1 pound of apples
2 1/4 cup of sugar
2 cups of water
Meanwhile, make the syrup. In a heavy
saucepan combine the sugar and cups of water. Bring to a boil,
stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Transfer the apples to the boiling
syrup and stir for a minute to coat them. Lower the heat and cook,
covered, for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and increase the heat to
medium high. Cook rapidly, turning the apples occasionally, for 10 to
15 minutes more, until the fruit is tender but has not lost its shape.
Pack with the syrup into a sterilized jar and seal.
