This recipe came from Rob, a great friend who lives in Pritchard, it's where I lived for about seven years, although she used to live in Lillooet (where I came back to) years ago and our families knew each other way back when.
The original recipe called for 4 1/2 cups of sugar but I found it too sweet, almost like that "Tutti Fruiti" HP Sauce so I cut the sugar back to about 3 cups and it's now more like regular HP Sauce. I process it in pint jars; when I'm ready to use it I pour into a water bottle and keep it refrigerated. I also use water bottles for salad dressings, the ones with the wide mouths are the best, especially when you buy in bulk.
12 Cups chopped apples
12 Cups chopped blue plums -prune plums
3 heads of garlic
1/4 cup pickling salt
3 cups white sugar
6 Cups malt vinegar
2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons allspice
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 teaspoon cayenne
Cook fruit, onions, and garlic. Press though sieve, puree in a blender, or use a berry press. Add spices, salt, sugar, and malt vinegar, then boil down until fairly thick (this can take quite awhile).
Process in hot water bath for 15 minutes. If I remember right I think it makes about 8 pints, but it's been almost a year since I made it! When I make it this year I'll update as to the exact amount.
Can be used on meat, eggs, and for a dipping sauce.
