Cook these in the usual way as for
apple sauce, but if you have airy fresh
apple juice boiled down'to a syrup,
cook them in It, as it improves the
flavor. For six quarts of .cooked ap-
ples, then take one pint of good cider
vinegar and two and one-half pounds
of brown sugar. Boil all down to one
gallon, and when thick and nearly
done season to taste with cinnamon
or other spice desired and put up in
jars like jam. It will keep well for
any length of time.
Another way is this: Boil new cider
down to one-half quantity. Pare, cut
and core equal quantities of sweet and
sour apples. Put the sweet apples
into a large kettle to soften a little
first, as they are the hardest. Add
enough boiled cider to cook them in.
After boiling half an hour, stirring
often, put in the sQur apples, and add
more boiled cider, with molasses
enough to sweeten moderately. Boil
until tender, stirring to prevent burn-
ing. ' •
