This recipe comes from Kim Young who works for us. She brought some in recently and it was yummy! This is not a fast recipe! It takes a lot of cooking time - but it's worth it. Kim says to be patient - it tastes like applesauce until the last few hours.

- 2 quarts apple cider
- 4 quarts cored, peeled apples (about 10 medium apples)
- 1 c sugar
- ½ c brown sugar
- 2 c dark Kayro syrup
- 2½ t cinnamon
- 1 t ground cloves
- Put cider in a heavy stock pan and bring to a boil. Cook until volume is halved (approximately 45 minutes).
- Add apples and cook uncovered on low heat until smooth, stirring regularly (approximately 2 hours). You can use a masher to help smooth it out.
- Add sugar, brown sugar, and Kayro syrup. Heat on high, stirring constantly, until boiling. Reduce heat to low.
- Add cinnamon and cloves. Cook on low for an additional 2-4 hours.
- To test to see if it is done, drop some onto a plate and let cool. The consistency should be easily spreadable.
