Ingredients:

3 cups apple pulp -- some skins
1/2 large lemon with peel -- ground
1 medium orange with peel -- ground
1 cup seedless raisins -- ground
1 cup seedless raisins whole
1 cup currants (or more raisins)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon cloves
3/4 teaspoon allspice (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 tablespoons flour (or 1 tb arrowroot fl)
1/4 cup date sugar (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons rum flavoring (optional)
 

Preparation / Directions:

Quarter and core apples, but do not peel. Grind in old-fashioned meat grinder (food processor makes them too fine), using medium-coarse blade. Remove seeds from lemon and orange, grind and add to apples. Grind 1 cup raisins. Mix all ingredients except rum flavoring in large bowl, stirring in spices and flour, then date sugar if desired. Add flavoring and mix again. Place in covered bowl or other container with tight lid; refrigerate at least one week before using or canning. (1/2 inch head space, boiling water bath 20 min for pints after water returns to boil, longer for altitudes over 1000 ft.) If any jars fail to seal, freeze for later use. To freeze after refrigerating for the recommended week, place in clean freezer containers or jars, leaving 1/2 inch at top. Cover with clean lids and place in sharp-freeze section of freezer until frozen. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before using. Makes 1 quart, enough for 2 8-inch pies.
