1 qt. cranberries, 1 1/2 qt. sweet apples in quarters

2/3 qt. cold water, 3/4 - 1 cup sugar

Cook sugar, water and cranberries together, until the cranberries begin to crack; add the apples and cook all slowly until the apples are soft. Put into jars and seal.


1 qt. plums, 1/4 - 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 - 1/2 cup water

It is a good plan to prick the plums on all sides with a fork before cooking.

Concord Grapes

Pulp the grapes, run skins through the food cutter and cook for 20 m. in the water. Boil pulp until tender and rub through colander to remove the seeds. Add pulp and sugar to skins, heat to boiling and put into jars. The juice may be strained from the pulp and used to cook the skins in.
