Autumn Processing

A friend gave us a bag of plums. We have heaps of apples. Time for some preserving.
  1. The plums were washed and the stones removed.
  2. The apples were peeled and cored.
  3. These were put into a large pot with a small amount of water and a couple of tablespoons of sugar.
  4. Once the fruit was soft a stick processor was used to mush the fruit up.
  5. The mixture was poured into Vacola jars and lids fitted.
  6. The bottles were slowly heated up to 85 degrees Celsius (180 F) taking 45 mins to reach it.
  7. This temperature was maintained for one hour.
  8. Once cool the bottles were removed from the water and placed in a cool place.
  9. One winter night we get to eat some tasty fruit.
