I began by washing and peeling all of my apples. I didn't have a fancy crank peeler, I peeled them all by hand :( Then I sliced and cored them in one motion with the best tool in my kitchen.
Then puree the cooked apples using a food processor or mill. (Or in my case a Vita-Mix).
While this is preparing to boil, multi-task your attention to your jars. Are they warm enough? Are your lids in hot water ready to go?
Maintain the boil while filling your hot jars.
I did get tired of peeling apples by hand and thought I would try a batch with the peels on.
The batch turned out just fine. The Vita-Mix annihilated any trace of peel. I will be doing it that way from now on. So much easier. But, if you have a food mill or the means to purchase or borrow one, that makes this even easier!
