    how many pint jars will this make and how long will it last? Does it need to be refrigerated or is it shelf stable?
    thank you

      Hi Jo! 🙂 Because this recipe makes a slightly different amount every time due to apple quantity and size, I can’t give you and exact number of canning jars that it will fill. What I can tell you is that it makes approximately 6 to 7 quarts (it fills a 6 to 7 quart Crock Pot.) So… there are 2 pints in a quart… So by that approximation you’d have 12 to 14 pints. I hope that approximate measurement helps. XOXO ~M

        Hi yes thank you -that answers part of the question. After thinking about it I doubt it is shelf stable but do you know how long it will stay good in the fridge and is it freezable? and if so how long will it stay good in the freezer. Thanks so much. Jo

      Hi Mary,

      As I told Jo (in the comment above) It’s never an exact measurement… I can tell you it will make approximately 12 to 14 pints 🙂 Hope that helps! XOXO ~M

    I am going to make this! sounds as YUMMY as my Lays Cinnamon Bun Chips!
    I am one in four of Lays Do Us A Flavour chip finalists, and I was looking for something,
    to eat with my cinnamon bun chips and I think this is one of the yummies I will try!
