To make Apple Pie Filling you will need:

About 25 medium sized apples
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 Tablespoons cinnamon ( I use apple pie spice) 
3 Tablespoons cornstarch, arrowroot powder or flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice ( I have left this out – and the results are still fine) 

(This amount makes 3 quart sized jars – enough for three nice sized pies.)

  • Peel, core and slice your apples.
  • Add remaining ingredients.
  • Stir and cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes until
    a nice little syrup has formed and your apples are slightly tender.
  • Scoop apple pie filling into sterilized canning jars.
    Hot water bath the pie filling for 25 minutes.
  • To make pie:

      Dump contents of Apple Pie Filling jar into the crust. Add a few pads of butter –  Use bits of leftover crust to put little cut-outs onto the pie, or use a crumb topping or whatever you prefer.  Bake at 350° f for one hour.
