    I use the sugar syrup to store apples for the winter. If using large jars you can leave the apples whole, but usually cut them into quarters to put in smaller jars. fill the jar with the apples, pour on the sugar syrup to the brim, put on an airtight lid. Put the jar in boiling water and turn down to simmer for 10 minutes. Had to look in here though as wasn't sure if I was making the sugar syrup right. I was. - 24 Aug 2013
