It's APPLE season!!! And I love to dry apples, bottle apples, but this year I decided to try and bottle some apple pie filling! Let me tell you.. EASY, and so delicious! So I wanted to share it with you.
Bottled Apple Pie filling
4 1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Cornstarch
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
Blend all together in a pot with 1 tsp. Salt and gradually add 11 cups of water. You dont want to add all the water in at once because the corn starch will lump up. I started with 4 cups of water, let it start to boil added another 4 cups.. and so on! Until I had the 11 cups of water.
Cook until boiling, Add 3 Tablespoons lemon juice to bubbling mixture
Peel and slice apples and pack in jars.
Cover bottled apples with cooked mixture
Then seal with lids
Put in preasure cooker (water bath) for 20 minutes.
Makes 7 quarts.
*I peeled my apples at the begining and kept them in a HUGE mixing bowl with water and lemon juice. Then I packed the apples in the jars and did my mixture! I made double the reciepe I had that much apples to do! Also, pack your apples tight in the jars. I didnt do this with the first batch, and as you can see in the picture I have more filling than apples!!
Happy Pie filling making!!
