L.R. Apple pie filling to can

Submitted by: LRUSSELLFAMILY

Introduction

This makes about 51/2 quarts. I figure 1 quart per 9" pie cut into 8 pieces to come up with a serving size. I like to pick apples for pie filling before they're quite ripe, since they have better flavor and texture for pie filling. You can use about any kind of apple, but stay away from Red Delicious and Fuji. This makes about 51/2 quarts. I figure 1 quart per 9" pie cut into 8 pieces to come up with a serving size.

Ingredients

    4-1/2 cups sugar
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    1-1/2 cups clear jell
    10 cups water
    3 T. lemon juice
    4 quarts sliced apples (preferably small green ones)

Directions

In a large kettle combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmet and clear jell. Add water and whisk until smooth. You may need to squeeze any clear jell balls with your fingers. Cook until thick. Boil for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Stir in apple slices. Fill quart canning jars. Clean rims of jars with a dish rag. Put new lids on jars and tighten rings. Place in a canner. Add enough hot water to canner to come to jar necks. Cover canner and bring to a boil. Lower heat to keep at a gentle boil. Boil for 20 minutes. Remove from canner and let cool on counter. When they are cool, check for seal by pressing on lids. If they are pulled down tight, they are sealed and you may remove the rings and store on a self. If not, store in refrigerator and use within a week. Makes about 5-1/2 quarts.

  • This is one of my favorite Apple Pie recipes. I'm not a big apple pie fan, but this one I really like. I made a pie and froze the rest. Hopefully it freezes well. I'll let you know after christmas. - 12/7/08
