Christmas is almost here! This year we wanted to try our hand at canning. I remember my mom making apple butter and fig preserves when I was a kid. We both thought it would be a great gift for our neighbors and our mailman. We borrowed a friend's canner and it was the real deal. It was a little overwhelming, but Will tackled it and got the job done.

We bought 3-4 lbs of apples.

You cut the whole apple up core and all. and boil them until soft.

Puree and put the puree through a sieve.

Add your spices and let cook for 1-2 hours.

Place jars in boiling water and let them reach a certain temp.

Take them out and the tops will pop. Let them cool.

Decorate any way you like.
