Teacher Gifts

Gift baskets again. Will have apple tarts (the scented kind that you melt in a burner to make your house smell good, not the food kind, lol), a pot holder, and this bread.

Apple Bread-in-a-Jar

Recipe By : Cherylann
Serving Size : 32
Categories : Gifts-in-a-Jar

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 2/3 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups shredded apples
2/3 cup water
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2/3 cup nuts

This recipe is easy to do, but the instructions must be followed exactly. The nicest thing about giving Bread-In-A-Jar is that those who receive it can keep it until they get over the holiday food blahs.

Preheat oven to 325°. Bake in pint size wide mouth canning jar, seal immediately upon removing from the oven. It will keep on the shelf for up to one year. Take jars out the oven one at a time. When jars have cooled enough to handle them, tighten the tops. As jars cool, they will seal.

Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs, apples and water.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Add to pumpkin mixture into greased wide mouth pint jars, filling half full.

Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. When done, remove one jar at a time, wipe sealing edge with paper towel or cloth and screw cap on tightly. The heat will vacuum seal the jar and the bread will keep up to one year.
