4 quarts crab apples
2 cups vinegar
5 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon whole cloves
2 sticks cinnamon
1 tablespoon whole allspice

Wash crab apples and remove blossom end; do not pare.

Combine remaining ingredients and simmer together 20 minutes. Add apples a few at a time and simmer until tender.

Pack apples in hot sterilized jars adding syrup to cover apples; seal.

Makes 6 pints.

If a more spicy apple is desired, add 1 small piece of ginger root to the syrup with other spices.
