Winter Canning – Spiced, Candied Apple Rings

My motivations for canning and preserving are varied. First, I like the control canning gives me over my food. I like knowing that the food my family eats later this year was high quality and chosen by me, with no unsafe “non-food” surprises lurking in the bottom of the can.

I like the fact that the food I can tastes not only tastes better than the same item purchased at the grocery store but is healthier than its commercially canned cousin too.

And sometimes food nostalgia drives my canning/preserving. Spiced, candied apple rings fall into this last category. These apple rings are a throwback from my childhood and still taste just as good as I remember. They add the perfect touch along side a winter-friendly comfort food meal. The other night I served them with stewed beans and a pasta casserole to rave reviews from the grandchildren. They are also a good accompaniment to chicken cutlets or pork chops. Since fresh apples are still available, winter is the perfect time for this canning project.
