Make your own cinnamon apples with this easy canned cinnamon apples recipe. Eaten as a snack, on top of ice cream, used to make a pie; the ideas are endless for these delicious cinnamon apples!


● 6 pounds Apples

● 1 TBSP Lemon Juice

● 2¼ cups Sugar

● 1 tsp Cinnamon

● Pinch Nutmeg

● ½ tsp salt

● 5 cups water + more for water bath


● Wash your canning jars, lids, gaskets, screw tops in the dishwasher on sanitize, boiling water on the stove, or extremely hot sink water.

● Wash, peel, core, and slice your apples, tossing with lemon juice as needed to keep the sliced apples from browning.

● In a medium stock pot over medium heat combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and water and simmer for 20 minutes.

● Place sliced apples into jars leaving about ½ an inch of headspace in the top.

● Ladle hot syrup into each jar, filling with enough liquid to cover apples. Gently push down apples to submerge and release any air bubbles.

● Top with lids and loosely tighten rings.

● Completely submerge jars in a large stockpot of water using either a canning basket or tongs and allow to boil for 25-30 minutes.

● Remove carefully from the water bath and allow jars to cool completely before removing rings and storing.

Tip: Store the jars without the screw top rings on so you can keep an eye on the seal of the lid and make sure it is not compromised during canning and storage.

● This makes 6 pints of canned cinnamon apples.

● If you would like to thicken for pie filling, cook the apples with a bit of cornstarch before making a pie.

● This recipe is made using a water bath instead of a pressure canner. You might be able to can these in a pressure canneron a low PSI and for a shorter amount of time but I have never done it that way so I am not sure of time or pressure.
