Spiced grated apples

Tried something new this year while canning apples to add to our muffins and oatmeal through the winter.

Makes appx 4 pints
6 lbs apples
3/4 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 t ground ginger
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
2 t citric acid

Line a colander with clean cotton towel and place over big bowl. Wash, core and shred apples using food processor. Put apples into towel, sprinkle 1/4 sugar and spices, and then gently mix, then and strain well. You’ll prob have 2-3 cups liquid. Pour the juice into stockpot, add remaining sugar and bring to a boil. Then add in apples and stir to coat. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 1/2 t citric acid to each pint jar, pack well with apple mixture. Leave 1/2″ headspace. Process 25 minutes.
