1/2 ts baking powder

2 ts baking soda

1 1/2 ts salt

1 ts cinnamon

2 ts cloves

2/3 c walnuts, chopped (optional)

2/3 c nuts, chopped (opt)

Cream together the shortening & sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until the mixture is light & fluffy. Add the applesauce & water; set aside. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon & cloves. Blend the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture. Fold in the nuts. Sterilize pint (wide mouth jam/jelly) jars, lids & rings. keep the lids & rings in the hot water until ready to use). Grease the insides of the jars with shortening, DO NOT use Pam). Fill jars half full. As I haven't made this one, you'll have to figure out how many jars to use. Place the jars on a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 325-degrees. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until pick inserted in the center (deep) of each cake comes out clean. Remove jars from the oven one at a time (use HEAVY DUTY HOT PADS!), wipe rim of jar clean; put on a lid & ring & screw on tightly. Jars will seal as the cakes cool. You'll hear a "plinking" sound which means that the jars have sealed. If you're not sure, push down on the lids after the cakes have cooled, the lids should NOT be lose or it is NOT sealed. Decorate jar as desired.
