Yield: 2 quarters

Ingredients:

  • 4 quarts (1/2 peck) apples
  • 3 or 4 purple plums, pitted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • juice from 1/2 to 1 lemon, to taste
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg

Instructions:

Wash and quarter apples and plums. (No need to peel or core apples.) Place in a large pot and add 2 cups water. Cover and boil until apples are soft and the peels are falling off. Add sugar.
