I canned spiced apple rings...what a bust. I don't think I will be canning rings again next year. The peeler, corer, slicer worked, but only how it wanted to. I think the apples were too soft for rings. The recipe called for too much mace, which I should have realized when I smelled the mace that it would be too strong a flavor. And, in the end, I'm not sure all my jars pinged sealed. Now I have tons of jars of apple rings...and well, maybe they'll be yummy mixed with yogurt.
Maybe drying and freezing apples is the way to go.
And, of course, honeyed applesauce--yum!
