Luncheon 
Apple Butter

To 7 cups applesauce add 7 cups sugar, 1/8 tsp. cloves, 1 tsp. allspice, 1 tsp. cinnamon, a sprinkling of nutmeg. Finish in oven or cook on top of stove.

Note from Janet: I tried this once, and it cooks LONG, like maybe 2 hours. Mother told me Gramie used to cook it in the oven to avoid splatters on stove.

Fresh Fig Conserve Clip stems from the figs and chop. Combine figs and sugar in a large pan, allow to stand one hour. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring often until thickened about 20 min. Add lemon juice and orange peel and walnuts. Bring to boiling again for 3 min. Pour into hot sterilized Jars. Makes 5 half pints.
Golden Pineapple Jam Wash and drain apricots. Add water; simmer, covered, 30 min. Cool, then mash to a pulp. Add pineapple and sugar. Simmer, stirring occasionally to avoid scorching, for 20 min. Stir in lemon juice. Pack immediately in clean, freshly scalded jelly glasses to within " of top. Cover at once with 1/8" layer of hot paraffin. When cool, top with tight covers. Makes 3 pints.
Orange Marmalade Quarter lemons lengthwise; remove seeds. Cut fruit across in very thin slices, enough to fill 1 cup, pressing fruit down into the cup. Peel oranges and remove seeds. Remove white portion from only two of the orange peels; put peels through food grinder, using coarse knife. The amount of peel is enough to flavor the marmalade. Grind orange pulp. Amount should measure 3 cups. Put fruit in large bowl and add water; let stand overnight. In the morning, place in a preserving kettle and boil for about 1 hour. Peel will be tender. Let stand overnight again, then measure and add an equal amount of sugar. Stir well. Bring to a boil and cook until it reaches the jelly-like stage (219 to 221 degrees on candy thermometer). Test by dipping spoon into syrup and letting it run out one side. When two heavy drops form and slide together in a sheet, the marmalade has cooked long enough. Remove from heat. Skim and pour into hot sterilized marmalade glasses. Makes 6 glasses. (Takes 1 hours cooking time.)
