2 tsp baking soda
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 cups applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon, ground
3 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp cloves, ground
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecans, chopped

8 wide-mouth 1-pint canning jars

Preheat oven to 325F
Grease 8 wide-mouth pint canning jars
with melted shortening. Use a brush
and avoid getting grease on the jar rims
Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs
and applesauce. Sift together the dry
ingredients and blend them into the applesauce
mixture. Add the raisins and nuts and divide
the batter evenly between jars. The jars will
be more than half full. Bake open jars about
60 minutes. When done, quickly remove one
hot jar at a time and clean its sealing edge
Immediately apply and firmly tighten a two-piece
wide-mouth canning lid. The lid will form a
vacuum seal as the jar cools

Tie a homespun fabric bow around the lid
Attach jar labels
