I kept meaning to share this, so many people have asked. * 6 cups diced peeled apples (1/8-inch cubes) * 1/2 cup water (or apple juice) * 1/2 teaspoon butter (optional) * 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin * 3 cups sugar * 2 cups packed brown sugar * 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon * 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg Directions: In a Dutch oven, combine the apples, water and butter. (I use a large pot as I don't have a dutch over) Cook and stir over low heat until apples are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in pectin and bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Add the sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg and return to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
