Why Can Apples?
Perusing apple orchards and canning apples have been beloved traditions for generations. It not only allows you to savor the taste of fall throughout the year, but it’s a great way to reduce food waste and keep a supply of nutritious fruit on hand. And using True Lemon citrus wedges gives you a unique citrusy zing that beautifully complements the sweetness of the apples.
Select apples that are locally grown for a bright seasonal flavor. Baking apples work best because they hold up really well when cooked.
