This is a very simple recipe that I put together to use up the 60 pounds of apples my father gave me last week. I've left out the quantities since I imagine that most people will be putting up less than 20 quarts, but it's really just a matter of tasting as you go.
Tart apples (like Granny Smith), peeled and diced
Cinnamon, Cardamom, Nutmeg
Combine all ingredients to taste in a large stockpot. Simmer until the apples are extremely soft, and transfer to jars.
