Most apples are harvested in the fall. You don’t have to wait to make and enjoy this in the fall. Although I do make this both in the spring and fall. I like to wrap them in pretty little packages and give them away as Christmas presents. My friends seem to enjoy these more than any store bought gift they ever got. The best part is that this is in the crock pot and can cook while you do other things, other not so fun things, like laundry or dishes.
I know this is a no brainer, but any jars that don’t seal should be kept in the refrigerator.
Peace be with you,
