  • Bring a large pot of water to boil and prepare canning jars.
  • Fill warmed jars with hot apple sauce, leaving ½ inch of headspace. Remove air bubbles by running a wooden skewer or butter knife around the inside. Wipe rim clean. Place lid on jar and finger-tighten the band (it needs to be tight enough that it keeps the lid on, but not so tight that air can't escape).
  • Process jars in the hot water bath for 20 minutes, adjusting up for altitude (25 minutes for 1,000-3,000 feet, 30 minutes for 3,000-6,000 feet, and 35 minutes up to 8,000 feet).
  • Remove jars from pot and let cool for 24 hours. Check to make sure each jar is sealed. Store for up to 1 year.
