    4 cups diced apples
    1 cup broken pecans
    2 cups granulated sugar
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 large eggs, beaten

    Grease and flour two 1-pound coffee cans.

    In a medium bowl stir apples, pecans and sugar. Let stand for one hour, stirring often to make juice.
