Directions

  1. Stick 2 or 3 cloves into each of the crabapples, and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, stir together the water, sugar, and vinegar. Place allspice berries, cinnamon sticks, and lemon zest in cheesecloth, and tie cheesecloth to make a small bag; add to pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the crabapples,and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to lift out crabapples and place them into sterile jars. Cover with hot syrup, and seal in a hot water bath for 10 minutes, or until the centers of the lids are depressed. If the syrup seems too thick, add more water. Refrigerate after opening.

I halved the recipe. I had to add quite a bit of water ( 1 cup) to the sauce to have enough to cover the crabapples in the jars. My crabapples were yellow & quite small. They simmered for 40 minutes.
