Q: I decided to can some apples this fall. After peeling, slicing, stuffing into hot jars, covering with a light syrup and processing, there was a problem: the syrup in the jars no longer covers the apples! I want to try again, but want to preserve the apples correctly. Any idea what I did wrong?Sent by Brande
